According to the most recent report from the Adjudication Society there are on average 1500 adjudications per year within the UK of which nearly 50% relate to payment or withholding / pay less disputes. This seminar will provide a practical and tactical perspective of adjudication to help attendees ensure adjudication is not merely “an expensive way to flip a coin” as it has been described by some within the construction industry.
This seminar is tailored for construction professionals and will provide a practical guide to understanding current law and best practice in adjudication.
The seminar will address:
– What is adjudication appropriate for?
– How do I know if a dispute has crystallised?
– How to prepare for adjudication
– Tactics in adjudication
– Managing the adjudication process
– Advantages/disadvantages of adjudication
– What is the effect of an adjudicator’s decision?
