Our Afghan client constructed a bridge in Afghanistan for the United States Government, contracting with a large U.S.-based general contractor. During contract performance, our client discovered that the security and transport conditions drastically differed from what our client had expected during the bid process—resulting in huge cost overruns in constructing the bridge. We filed claims against the prime contractor for differing site conditions, violation of the superior knowledge doctrine, and various other causes of action. The parties litigated the claims before the International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR), which is the international arm of the American Arbitration Association.
Follow extensive discovery and investigation, we negotiated with the prime contractor and ultimately secured a multi-million dollar settlement on behalf of our client.
