Arbitration is a dispute resolution procedure offered as part of our commitment to delivering a complete range of legal services for the construction industry.
Many construction contracts require disputes to be referred to an arbitrator, who is appointed by agreement between the parties or by an independent nominating body. The Arbitrator may have professional expertise that may assist in the resolution of the dispute – for example he or she may be a surveyor and be asked to decide the quantum of a final account.
The Arbitrator will conduct the arbitration in a fair and impartial manner. The Arbitrator will obtain position statements and evidence from the parties to assist in the resolution of the dispute and will hold hearings to review the parties positions and receive evidence prior to deciding the issues.
Arbitration is conducted according to agreed rules and the Arbitration Act 1996.The submission of a case to an arbitrator requires careful preparation and presentation.
