Disputes are inevitable in construction contracts. Some may be resolved through negotiation but some may
end up in arbitration or litigation. Therefore, it is of utmost importance for a construction professional like
you to grasp the essentials of the entire arbitration process in order to perform your duties and obligations.

Typical questions that may arise include:

  • “Should the dispute be referred to arbitration or litigation?”
  • “How should the arbitrator be chosen?”
  • “Can the disputes be truncated into different arbitrations?”
  • “What are interlocutory applications?”
  • “Should we find an expert?”
  • “Can the cost be recovered if the arbitration is successful? If so, how much?”
  • “Is the award final and binding? Is there any chance for appeal?”

  • Choosing the right arbitrator
  • Interlocutory applications
