Arbitration and Adjudication

Rodgers & Burton has experience mainly in domestic arbitrations but has also undertaken arbitrations in relation to International Supply Contracts and is familiar with International Arbitration practice and rules such as UNCITRAL.

David Moore has been a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators since 1991.

Although adjudication has largely replaced arbitrations in domestic building contracts it is still possible to arbitrate at the conclusion of the contract.

Other domestic arbitrations can also be undertaken. There is provision for arbitration in a number of recent pieces of Landlord and Tenant Legislation and parties can undertake ad-hoc arbitrations as this is often cheaper than Court proceedings. Many contracts have provision for arbitration. However parties seldom choose arbitration in favour of Court proceedings as either they or their solicitors are unfamiliar with the procedures despite the fact that arbitration is often simpler, less formal and cheaper than court proceedings.

These days in building contracts parties will usually go to adjudication when a dispute arises. However the informality of the adjudication procedure does not mean that it is not a technically legal procedure. Because of this, legal advice on an adjudication is often vital. Parties who undertake adjudications without legal advice often do not get the best outcome out of an adjudication.
