Dr. Lukas Klee‘s book on international construction contract law falls into this category and would be a worthy addition to the bookshelf of every reader of Construction Law International. Non-Lawyers and lawyers alike will appreciate the author’s hands-on and real-life approach”. – Bernd Ehle; Construction Law International
