If it is not possible to resolve matters without recourse to formal proceedings, we have a wealth of experience in bringing or defending Adjudication proceedings (under The Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996).

Adjudication is a quick method of resolving construction disputes. An appointed Adjudicator must normally produce a decision within 28 days.

If you want to bring an Adjudication, it is essential that your case is ready before you start it, including your written submissions and your evidence. We can help you to get your case ready, including working with other construction professionals such as structural engineers, architects and quantity or building surveyors.

If you have just been served with a Notice of Adjudication/Referral Notice, you will normally only have a very short period of time to prepare your Response, including your submissions and your evidence. You might only have 7-10 days. We can help you to get your case ready and liaise with any necessary experts to ensure these deadlines are met.

An Adjudicator’s decision is binding unless it is overturned by an Arbitrator or Court. If you have received an award from an Adjudicator and have not been paid, you can enforce this through the Courts. We have experience of doing this.
