This webinar explains how arbitration and adjudication differ from litigation and identify some of the advantages in adopting these methods.

This webinar is inclusive to Civil Litigation Section members.

A litigator must consider dispute resolution before issuing proceedings to limit the amount of costs and adhere to potential contractual clauses.

The most commonly adopted forms of alternative dispute resolution are arbitration and adjudication. Although these procedures are similar, they should not be confused.

This webinar covers:

  • identifying the best dispute resolution method
  • choosing your arbitrator or adjudicator
  • procedures and timescales
  • cost
  • enforcement of awards and decisions.

Recorded on 13 March 2019.
