Adjudication is one of the most commonly used forms of dispute resolution in the UK. This one-hour webinar is designed to give candidates an overview of what an adjudication process entails from start to finish.

The seminar will cover the following areas:

  • Drafting a valid and effective notice of adjudication
  • Appointing an adjudicator
  • Dealing with challenges to the adjudicator’s jurisdiction
  • Preparing a referral notice and dealing with the responding party
  • Enforcing the adjudicator’s decision if the responding party fail to comply with it
