NEPIC Members Solomons Europe are delighted to sponsor and host the next ACostE Breakfast Seminar for the North East region on the 23rd May 2019.
Since 1998 adjudication has been a major feature of construction contracting. In this seminar we summarise the major developments in this controversial process over recent years to bring you up to date.
What will be covered?
• Effects of insolvency and adjudication
• The end of “smash and grab”
• Counterclaims and set-off as defences
• Three-way Adjudication problems, between subcontractor, main contractor and employer
• Bias in adjudicators
• Adjudicating against foreign companies
