Construction industry disputes are common, and the amounts in dispute are frequently quite high. Additionally, disputes in the construction industry are often quite complex, thus making it difficult to present issues clearly to non- technical triers of fact. Until the late 1980s, the traditional dispute resolution process involved negotiation and some form of administrative appeal, possibly mediation, followed by either arbitration or litigation. As a result, the construction industry has developed a number alternative means of resolving disputes.
And in the past two decades, settlement of disputes has come a long way from litigation and arbitration. Alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”) has become common in construction.
This session discusses over 40 alternate methods for resolving disputes when they cannot be negotiated by the parties. The intent of these methods is to promote a decrease in expensive litigation or arbitration costs through the increased use of mediation, partnering, dispute resolution boards and other methods, by being able to:
- Identify the basic types of ADR — pre-dispute, facilitative, recommendation, final & enforceable decision
- Learn how the methods work
- Consider factors such as cost, timeliness and confidentiality
- Evaluate the success rates of different methods
- And much, much more!
ADR procedures, on the other hand, provide viable alternatives to costly litigation and help projects get back on track quickly and productively. Attend this informative session to learn about alternate dispute resolution options that could help you cut litigation and arbitration costs and help your project succeed!
