DIY sub-contractor adjudication: the pitfalls and opportunities

Gateley Legal

Often seen as a “pay now, argue later” process, adjudication is normally used to resolve construction disputes, as the parties to a construction contract cannot contract out of it.

Adjudication is designed to safeguard cash flow for businesses by stopping one side from withholding payments from the other for long periods of time. But how do you go about representing yourself in an adjudication, what are the pitfalls to avoid and are there any benefits to “doing it yourself”?

What will you learn? 

Our live webinar will take you through the do's and don’ts of representing yourself and give you a keen insight into what an adjudicator will look for, specifically looking at:

  • What is the process for “DIY adjudication”? 
  • Obstacles for a claimant (and the adjudicator) to navigate.
  • What does an adjudicator want to see, and conversely, what should you avoid?

Who should watch?

Anyone working within the construction sector, in particular specialist sub-contractors and main contractors.
