Outline:

Introduction and background / discussion of CIF policy documents with by Sean Downey, CIF.

Bruno Herbots – Herbots Solicitors: Where are we now and what are our options?

  • Has adjudication been the panacea that it was hoped it would be?
  • Where is conciliation now, and why might you choose conciliation over adjudication?
  • What about other options – dispute boards, early dispute avoidance?

Jamie Ritchie – LK Shields: A look at the recent court decisions relating to adjudication, and what they mean for future disputes.

  • What do the recent court decisions mean for the industry?
  • What are the implications of the recent court practice note – will we see quicker decisions?
  • How does adjudication fit with the CIF’s aims? What improvements are still needed for adjudication to be truly useful?

Bill Bordill – Decipher: A look at the key things people need to consider when preparing for adjudication or any form of dispute resolution.

  • The key elements of a claim – causation, effect, entitlement, substantiation.
  • What records should we be keeping and how?
  • What about technology? Should we be looking for technological solutions to assist with claim preparation and resolution?
