"Taking Arbitration to The Stage"
As skyscrapers erect, apartment buildings emerge, and infrastructure materializes all around Indonesia and throughout ASEAN, APEC, or BRI countries, one symptom of progress is certain: construction disputes.
Witness an infrastructure project gone wrong as international lawyers, arbitrators and construction & valvation experts transform into actors and actresses in order to let you experience an actual arbitration-based story-lines as it unfolds. Cringe as the authentic, on-the-ground frustrations and unexpected pitfalls threaten to derail amicable solutions. Laugh as the drama takes on comical but representative twists and turns. Smile as the true-to-life process transpires and ultimately culminates into an equitable and enforce-able dispute resolution.
"Who needs Hollywood when life itself is so rich with plot-twisting, character-cracking, and finale-shocking stories?
Let reality rule and arbitration take the leading role!"
