In this client alert, we have included our first episode on “Adjudication” and some key takeaways for our clients’ reference.

  • Adjudication is a simple, effective, and swift method of resolving disputes.

  • Adjudications are conducted by a sole adjudicator in accordance with the Rules and terms of the contract and its applicable law.
