Adjudication provides a quick and inexpensive solution to many disputes arising under a construction contract. It is designed to produce a remedy during the process of a construction project to avoid the problem of long court litigation, which many sub-contractors and small construction companies are unable to afford.
Adjudication is appropriate for resolving financial disputes relating to delay and disruption claims, extension of time claims, final accounts disputes and can be particularly helpful in sorting out disputes on interim applications. Although it has been available since 1998, many contractors still have not taken advantage of the benefits offered by the adjudication procedure.
The legal right to adjudicate is a right that the parties cannot contract out of. A party to a construction contract has the right to refer a dispute to adjudication at any time. The Adjudicators decisions are also binding on the parties until the dispute is finally determined by legal proceedings, by arbitration or by agreement.
There are many benefits of adjudication:
It must be borne in mind that the costs of adjudication cannot be recovered from their opponent even if the adjudication is successful.
Our solicitors have significant experience in all aspects of construction, particularly in disputes. We regularly act for clients in adjudication, arbitration, court litigation and mediations, and are often prepared to act on a no win, no fee basis.
I just wanted to say thank you for all your advice, support and expertise during the process.
Your calm, measured and objective approach really helped keep me calm and confident that I was making the right decisions.
No one wants their employment to end like this, but its nice to walk away on my own terms, with some security.
I was very happy with the quickness and professionalism of your services. I can only recommend you to anyone who needs employment legal advice.
"You have helped me enormously in making me more aware of the law and my situation; for that a very big thank you. I will certainly recommend you to any of my friends who find themselves in a similar situation".
“Thanks [Sukhi Bagha] for enabling the sale to go through so quickly and so efficiently. Having bought and sold several properties in the UK, I can honestly say that you have proved to be the most effective conveyancing professional we've dealt with”.
"From the start, the service I received from both Corinne and Jennifer was excellent. I always felt I was in very capable and professional hands. They negotiated an extension of the free rental period for my commercial lease by a month without being asked, which was very proactive and helped a lot. I will definitely be using Curzon Green again."
Thank you so very much for your help, advice and support through what has been a very unpleasant time. Knowing that you were ‘looking after us’, was an immense help.
My only regret is not contacting you sooner.
You have been nothing short of amazing over the past 15 months. I would have never had the courage to pursue this were it not for your unending support, hard work, and conviction... You were the one who made it all happen.
Jennifer Sole is the (wo)man for this job! Boutique firm based in London and she has helped a number of my friends. Very good and reliable.
She was absolutely excellent with the client and his supportive family and combined infectious enthusiasm for the case with strategic good sense and judgment well beyond her years post qualification.
We will always use you from now on for employment issues.
No thanks required [for recommending a new client]. I only recommend you because you're good. Lunch, soon?
Not only have you provided first class professional advice to me but at the same time you have added the human touch and have been so caring and understanding. This made such an enormous difference and helped me through very difficult times. Once again a big thank you and it has been a pleasure being a client.
You have been fab!
Thanks, as always for your sound timely advice.
I came to Rob Green having suffered a serious permanent spinal injury. This injury arose from circumstances where I had to make a claim for damages against a driver who had caused a car accident, the medical specialists who treated me and also a personal accident insurer (which was refusing to pay out on a life assurance policy).
As a first time buyer I did not have a clue about the conveyancing process. My sister recommended me to Curzon Green Solicitors. Curzon Green acted as my solicitors for the purchase. They understood that I knew nothing about buying houses and so they talked and walked me step-by-step through the process.
From the start of my search for legal advice Curzon Green stood out from the competition. Their approach was fresh, open, jargon-free and without initial charges for the initial exploratory conversation. I was looking for a different, collaborative means to sort my divorce, and Curzon Green were well-qualified and experienced. Having engaged his services, he first explained the outline of the law in this area, and provided a clear structure of how to go forward to engage with my wife and her solicitor.
Curzon Green is a relatively new company but ECS has the confidence to say that they will have a long and prosperous future, if they continue to provide to their clients the same level of service that ECS has received.
