About this event

The ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolution Centre) is pleased to announce the introduction of a new alternative dispute resolution process, Contractual Adjudication. This process will be delivered domestically in New Zealand through the New Zealand Dispute Resolution Centre and internationally through the New Zealand International Arbitration Centre.

Contractual Adjudication offers a proportionate and fast-track dispute resolution process with the primary purpose of improving cashflow, whilst providing quick and relatively inexpensive access to justice, alleviating pressure on the Courts.

Importantly it also provides parties with a procedural option that is effective and efficient, allowing them to find a resolution to their dispute and move forward as quickly as possible. Based on the successful statutory adjudication scheme which has become the predominant forum for dispute resolution in the construction industry over the last 20 years, contractual adjudication provides a private, proportionate, effective and efficient alternative dispute resolution process, for a wide range of disputes.

Join us for a seminar and find out more about this brand-new dispute resolution process.

In this event, we will outline the following:

  • What is Contractual Adjudication
  • Who can use the process
  • How to engage in the process

Who should attend?

  • Barristers

  • In-house counsel
