Adjudication

What is Adjudication?

In construction, adjudication is a contractual procedure describing the legal process that assists swift resolution of disputed issues between parties. Adjudication decisions are legally binding, unless revised by Arbitration or Litigation.  Adjudication is a powerful tool which enables parties to pursue their cases in the knowledge that they are not generally at risk of the other party’s costs. The process is quick and it is possible to get a decision within 28 days of the referral of the dispute.

Since the 1996 Housing Grants Construction and Regeneration Act, adjudication has become by far the most popular form of dispute resolution for construction matters in the UK.

Our Approach

Given that this is a compressed process, it is essential that any case is presented in a straightforward, clear and concise manner, with all relevant evidential support.

There is a significant body of case law surrounding adjudication, the knowledge of which can be crucial to properly presenting, defending or prosecuting a case.

In our experience, a good technical understanding of the construction issues, and the ability to present those issues clearly, is fundamental to the success of a case.

Our construction claims consultants have acted in over 100 adjudications, securing positive commercial results for our clients. We have the knowledge and experience required to represent our clients to the highest possible standards, resulting in success against many large multinationals and specialist law firms across a wide range of disputes.

Our combination of commercial, technical and legal knowledge means we are uniquely positioned to maximise your potential award in any adjudication proceedings.
