Lecture Information
 
It is common to see disputes arise during the construction period. The traditional way of resolving disputes by way of litigation and/or arbitration can be expensive and time-consuming and sometimes bring disruptive financial impact on a company.

The international trend is to avoid disagreements which have the potential to turn into disputes as and when they arise by way of introducing suitably designed disputes avoidance measures into the contract such as partnering and DRA/DRB.

In this lecture, the speaker will share his experience as a practising DRA and how he sees the proposed new Security of Payment legislation, if enacted, would affect the existing dispute resolution climate in Hong Kong. He will also analyze what are the distinct features of adjudiction compared with other forms of ADR methods currently in use in Hong Kong.
 
Here are the details:  
 
Topic: Will adjudication under the proposed Security of Payment Bill be the panacea for resolving construction disputes in Hong Kong in the future?

What are the alternatives and how does it impact on the existing dispute avoidance measures currently in use in government contracts?
