Adjudication

Adjudication

What our barristers offer

Our barristers are involved in all aspects of adjudication and dispute boards at all levels of seniority, both in the UK and across the globe, and at every stage.

Acting for parties

They are regularly instructed in disputes at all stages, from advisory work, to settling referrals and other adjudication documents, to appearing in hearings before adjudicators across the entire range of construction, engineering, and PFI / PPP / projectco disputes. Our barristers have been instructed in many of the most complicated and high-profile court cases before, during and after adjudication proceedings, in enforcement proceedings or in related actions.

Appointments as adjudicators and to dispute boards

Members of 39 Essex Chambers are regularly appointed as adjudicators and as panel members of dispute boards, DRBs, and DABs / DAABs. Many of them are senior members of leading adjudication panels and accept appointments through ANBs. They also accept appointments through contractual pre nomination and ad hoc appointments.

Related areas
