Dr Dimitar Kondev's book on multi-party and multi-contract arbitration in the construction industry tackles a complex topic, which presents many hurdles in practice. Dr Kondev has successfully accomplished this difficult task. He leads the reader through the intricacies and pitfalls of this subject in an efficient and well-structured manner. He also takes a convincing stance on the most controversial issue and proposes pragmatic and workable solutions to the recurring problems that arise with respect to multi-party arbitration in construction disputes. This book might be of interest not only for practitioners specialised in construction arbitration but also for the arbitration community... In view of the foregoing, there is no doubt that this book is a must read for arbitration practitioners. Let us hope that Dr Kondev s recommendations will be well received and implemented by the practitioners and drafters of international standard forms and arbitration rules. This would be a significant step-forward in enhancing dispute resolution in the construction industry. Fabrice Robert-Tissot, International Business Law Journal (RDAI 2018/1, pp 121-124) This is the first book which deals with multi-party and multi-contract arbitration in the construction sector. In his book, Dr Kondev makes an in-depth analysis of the legal regulation of this type of arbitration contained in the most popular institutional arbitration rules and the arbitration laws of different jurisdictions. The book also offers an up-to-date and thorough review of how multi-party and multi-contract arbitration is dealt with in the most widely used international standard forms of construction contract (such as the FIDIC books, NEC3, etc.) and some domestic standard forms (used mostly in Great Britain, the US and some Scandinavian countries) The book also contains practical guidelines for drafting multi-party arbitration clauses Because of the importance of the matters discussed in this treatise, it would be of great value to lawyers, arbitrators and academics in the field of international commercial arbitration.
