With over 20 years of experience in managing projects in the construction and oil and gas industries, MICA has developed a deep understanding of the fundamental aspects of claim and dispute management.
Often, disputes are mired in a stand-off situation with both affected parties unwilling to shift grounds and reach a compromise.
In this case, the situation calls for the intervention of a third-party to analyze and bring the dispute to a quick resolution.
Cost, especially if there is a prolonged litigation or arbitration, can have a huge and totally unnecessary impact on the project and the client(s).
MICA has the ability to bring about a quick resolution by managing your disputes through analyzing contractual and legal standing, and by fact-finding with the involvement of your project personnel in all stages of the proceedings

Adjudication, though widely practiced internationally, is still a fairly new concept in the GCC region.
Adjudication is the statutory right given to every party to a contract to refer a dispute to an independent third party, in this case MICA, who will function as the adjudicator.
MICA will present its findings so that judgment can be given based on the established rights and obligations between the parties involved.
The adjudication procedure is intended to deal with all manner of disputes, including delays, additional cost claims, variations etc.
As one of the first to introduce adjudication locally, we hope to be able to see an increase in the awareness of this method of dispute and claims settlement as it is cost-effective and can be a quick method of resolution.
