Construction projects experience numerous challenges, which can result in disputes between any of the involved parties: owners, consultants, contractors, and subcontractors. In some cases, these disputes threaten the timing and/or economics of project completion. As a result, the availability of cost-effective, efficient, timely, and fair dispute resolution mechanisms is important. Recently, some jurisdictions have adopted the adjudication model to better achieve these results.
This panel involved discussion of construction dispute resolution mechanisms and potential complications that could arise from adding another mechanism.
BRG, Burnet, Duckworth & Palmer LLP, Driver Trett, and the Society of Construction Law North America (SCL NA) co-hosted this panel. Anamaria Popescu is chair of SCL NA.
