Faculty and Summary

75 Minutes

When alternative dispute resolution is being considered, the two processes that immediately come to mind are mediation and arbitration. There are, however, additional non-traditional options for avoiding and resolving disputes, many of which are particularly suitable for use in the construction arena.

This 75-minute recorded webinar focuses on proactive strategies to reduce and manage the likelihood of formal construction disputes, and to reduce the cost of dealing with such disputes if they arise.

Among the topics discussed:

Contractual mechanisms to encourage collaborative resolution, including—

  • escalation clauses
  • mandatory pre-suit mediation
  • project neutrals
  • dispute review boards
  • Standard Form Contract options
  • Integrated project delivery (IPD)
  • meeting of stakeholders
  • independent experts
  • issue narrowing

Non-contractual resolution approaches—

  • meeting of stakeholders
  • independent experts
  • issue narrowing

and more.

Register for this webinar to learn new and emerging techniques for resolving construction disputes faster, for less cost, and without sacrificing business relationships.

WHO WOULD BENEFIT FROM THIS PRESENTATION – Arbitrators, mediators, general counsel, private practice attorneys, construction executives, academics, and anyone interested in the dynamics of dispute resolution.
