Adjudication Services for Businesses

Commercial dispute resolution procedures can involve a number of steps, including adjudication where appropriate. If your business is faced with a dispute that needs settling, find out more about how our adjudication services could help.

The Adjudication Process

The adjudication process can either be a statutory or contractual process for settling a dispute outside of court proceedings. Adjudication is a dispute resolution process that exists within the construction industry, to deal with all forms of building disputes or contract issues that business owners face within this industry.

Our adjudication services have helped a number of businesses within the construction industry, to deal with a variety of disputes including:

  • Disputes over the quality of work or craftsmanship
  • Delays with building works
  • Conflicts over unexpected price changes
  • Delayed payments from customers
  • Building contract disputes

An adjudicator will consider evidence from both parties involved and will make a final decision on the settlement of the dispute, which both parties must agree to. The adjudicator’s decision can then be enforced by seeking a Court Order. The adjudication process is quick, simple and a fair way for your business to reach a resolution.
