10th ICE’s Alternative Dispute Resolution workshop

The 10th ICE’s Alternative Dispute Resolution workshop is a definitive event, designed for those working in the construction sector.

At the 2018 event attendees will hear – An address from The Hon. Mrs Justice O’Farrell DBE, High Court Judge on ‘Challenges for the Judiciary’. ‘What’s new in the law for adjudicator’s’, ‘Adjudication of complex disputes’ and ‘NEC4: Collaboration to Avoid Disputes’

Delegates will benefit from workshop sessions including ‘Adjudicators’ challenges in NEC4′, ‘Practical Arbitration’ and ‘Adjudicator Appointments’.

As in previous years these workshops will also offer you the opportunity to attend two highly focused and learning based sessions, allowing you to tailor make your day to best suit you and your practice’s needs.

Choose two from:

Adjudicators’ challenges in NEC4
The new NEC4 contracts contain new provisions, not just in dispute resolution. There is a new dispute resolution option W2. This session will consider the new W2, how it should work and actually works from an adjudicator’s point of view. With sufficient time, there will be a debate about some of the common NEC-specific things that adjudicators face such as compensation event notifications, Z clauses and their effect etc.

Practical Arbitration Workshop

Managing the arbitral process. An opportunity to consider and discuss procedure and practical problems that may arise during the conduct of an arbitration.

Adjudicator Appointments
This workshop will explore and discuss: Adjudicator appointments; liens and deposits on fees; terms and conditions; methods of acceptance, or otherwise, of those terms and conditions; appointment as a named individual for personal professional services; operating as an adjudicator or arbitrator, and payment, through a company and/or an employer; Christopher Linnett Limited and Christopher Linnett v Matthew Harding.

Lecture 3 – Emily Monastiriotis,  Partner Simmons & Simmons LLP
‘Adjudication of complex disputes’
Emily will be looking at whether or not Statutory adjudication is a suitable forum for resolving complex construction disputes and will deal with issues that arise both for adjudicators and party representatives. She will review the relevant legislation and case law and adopt a practical approach.

Lecture 4 – Mr John Hughes-D’Aeth , Partner (Engineering and Construction), Berwin Leighton Paisner LLP.
“NEC4: Collaboration to Avoid Disputes”.

The philosophy of the NEC suite of contracts is that collaboration and a foresighted approach to risk management can help to minimise the occurrence of disputes on construction projects.  But what does this mean in practice, and how successful has the NEC been in achieving its vision?  This talk will examine some of the benefits and challenges of working under an NEC contract and will consider how the changes made in the recently-published NEC4 update might enhance its collaborative ethos.”
