When it comes to construction contracts, arbitration has commonly been the preferred method of dispute resolution. This is based largely on the belief that it is the quickest and least expensive way to resolve issues arising on the project and to minimize project delay. However, this has not always proven to be the case. Some owners and contractors have experienced frustration with the arbitration process, and the litigation of construction disputes has recently seen a resurgence in popularity.
This seminar will discuss whether the arbitration of construction disputes may still be the right choice for a given project and provide some practical tips for drafting arbitration clauses and conducting the arbitration itself.
- The pros and cons of arbitration vs. litigation
- Drafting an appropriate arbitration agreement for the project
- Key arbitration clauses to consider
- Conducting the construction arbitration: the rules of the game
- Breakfast and Registration: 7:30 – 8 a.m.
