WE ARE THE EXPERTS IN ADJUDICATION
In construction, the quickest and most cost-effective dispute resolution method is by construction adjudication. It is a relatively fast, cost effective and straight forward process. At Kenzie we are experts at representing clients within adjudication, drawing on our vast experience of construction claims to ensure that the adjudication process is successfully concluded in favour of our clients.
We believe it’s a distinct advantage for our clients to be able to instruct a single party who can manage the issue from the very beginning to final resolution. We can prepare (or defend) the construction claim, including the contractual basis, the delay and quantum analyses, as well as instigate, manage and prepare all necessary documents required within the adjudication. This avoids any potential duplication of effort and ensures that within adjudication the relative strengths and weaknesses of the claim are fully understood.
Or, during adjudication we can work alongside either your internal or external legal team to ensure that the most robust position is put forward on your behalf.
OUR EXPERIENCE AND EXPERTISE COUNTS
The adjudication procedure itself is a relatively straightforward, clearly the most important factor is that within the requisite documentation put forward your position is clearly structured, readily understood and appropriately evidenced.
At Kenzie we have extensive experience of representing clients within adjudication, either as the claimant or the defendant. Given the fact that adjudication is binding on the parties subject to final determination, it is of the utmost importance that you put forward the most robust, comprehensive and detailed position possible. In our view, it’s best to “tier” or “stack” up your arguments so as to give yourself the best chance of a successful result.
We consider this comes from years of experience of managing numerous, disputes and adjudications. It’s only by seeing an issue through from the beginning to the end, that you truly understand the arguments that are likely to have the best chance of success. This is the foundation of our success… commitment, pragmatism and experience.
At Kenzie we will ensure that:
- The pre-conditions to adjudication are complied with.
- You adopt the most appropriate adjudication strategy.
- You initiate the adjudication procedure correctly.
- You are (if required) represented at any hearings.
- You comply fully with the requirements of the HGRA and Scheme.
- That the requisite documentation is expertly completed on your behalf.
For years we have successfully represented clients within Adjudication, either as a claimant or defendant and we can in a clear and coherent manner advise you what your next steps may be, to ensure that you can resolve your dispute quickly and, in a cost, effective manner.
