Our Work: Adjudication

Adjudication has changed the way in which the construction industry deals with its disputes. The ever increasing number of contested decisions and the resulting judgments handed down by the courts require a thorough understanding of the ground rules.

In reality, however, many firms have limited experience of adjudication and do not have the in-house knowledge to enable them to mount - or defend - an adjudication effectively. This is a dangerous position to be in - particularly if you are on the receiving end of a referral notice and have only a matter of days in which to assemble your defence.

We have been involved in a great many adjudications and are highly experienced in the procedures, the tactics, and the law of adjudication. Matthew Bastone is a practicing adjudicator on the panels of the RICS, the RIBA, the CIArb and CEDR and has been nominated on more than 290 occasions to date.

We have extensive experience acting as party representative and expert witness in adjudication proceedings. If you are facing up to the prospect of adjudication, whether as Claimant or Respondent, we can help:

  • by providing you with impartial advice as to how to proceed and the likelihood of success
  • by ensuring that you present your case effectively, with properly prepared documentation and a professionally pleaded case, avoiding the many pitfalls which beset the unwary
  • by providing an in-house half-day training workshop for your staff to familiarise them with the law and procedures of adjudication.
