Dispute Resolution Appointments
“Adjudication is now part of the fabric of the construction industry, and has been for over 20 years. Many of the professionals involved in this field may not even recall a time when it was not available. Many parties in such disputes are content to accept the decision of the adjudicator as the permanent outcome of their dispute, or as the basis of a commercial compromise. There is a heavy responsibility on the adjudicator both for this reason, and also due to the time pressures imposed on the process. For the parties, the selection of an adjudicator who is experienced, independent and familiar with the control of procedure is of great importance.
As Judge in charge of the Technology and Construction Court, I encourage all parties in the use of TECBAR’s Dispute Resolution Appointments process. All of the members of the TECBAR Panel have the necessary skills to perform the task, and to perform it to a high standard.
TECBAR offers a substantial body of nominees collectively comprising decades of experience of all forms of dispute. Barristers are available at all levels of seniority and at short notice. All TECBAR nominated adjudicators undertake training before membership is approved. Barristers are known for their independence and ability to work under pressure, both of which are essential attributes for performance as adjudicators. Nor are the nominees limited to adjudicators. The selection process can be used for the nomination and appointment of arbitrators, mediators and DRB members.
As with the previous Judges in charge of the TCC, I am very pleased to recommend the use of TECBAR as a nominating body for all these forms of dispute resolution.”
Mr Justice Fraser
