About this Seminar:
Mediation, international arbitration and adjudication are all relatively recent entrants in the history of dispute resolution for construction and engineering contracts. Their evolution (and that of other dispute resolution methods) to become an everyday part of construction and engineering practice is a consequence of a world obsessed with speed and efficiency.
This talk will address the factors behind this evolution, the current cycles of change within dispute resolution methods in construction and engineering contracts and a view of the future of dispute resolution in the construction world
