The last few months have seen a number of decisions that impact on how parties refer disputes to adjudication, contest them, and then enforce the resulting decisions. The TCC and the Court of Appeal have provided guidance on a number of issues, including the bringing of adjudications by insolvent parties, using fraud to resist adjudication enforcement, and hybrid contracts.
John Denis-Smith and David Sawtell of 39 Essex Chambers will discuss some of the latest cases on adjudication in a live webinar format.
