An Introduction to Adjudication Under a Construction Contract
Adjudication was originally intended to assist contractors with cash-flow, allowing them to swiftly enforce an outstanding payment and continue the project. But it turned out to be a double-edged sword in that it could be wielded not only by the contractor, but also by the employer and even by a beneficiary under a collateral warranty, e.g., a funder or tenant, potentially years after the project had ended.
Adjudication is now a very popular, and relatively inexpensive, means of resolving construction disputes, including payment disputes, termination, and professional negligence claims.
In this webinar, we will explore the inherent features of adjudication and when the parties to a construction contract are able to use it, including when it can be used under a collateral warranty as was considered by the TCC in Toppan vs Simply .
