Arbitration in Construction Contracts

 

Gain an understanding of the different dispute resolution processes and how to make them effective.

Learn how to use arbitration and other forms of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) to resolve construction disputes. The construction industry was an early adopter of arbitration and has been in the forefront of employing other dispute resolution processes. However, many construction professionals do not fully understand the different processes or how to effectively use them to resolve their disputes. Arbitration is criticized for being too much like litigation and not delivering speedy, economical resolution of disputes. This topic will explain how the parties can make arbitrations faster and more efficient, and will define and explain the different dispute resolution processes and will explore what is needed, from the parties and their counsel, to make them effective. The approach will be practical, not theoretical. It will equip clients to knowledgeably discuss dispute resolution options with their lawyers and to shape an approach that is appropriate for the amounts in dispute. It will describe how both parties can benefit from working together to reach agreement on a practical process for resolving their substantive dispute.
