Dispute Resolution

Edge Consult regularly acts as Party Representative in adjudications. We have been involved in hundreds of adjudications and provided support in arbitration and litigation cases. These utilise our combined technical expertise in time, cost and construction contracts.

However, wherever possible, our aim is to try to avoid full blown disputes with all the time and cost that involves. In addition to our dispute expertise, we will utilise our experience, negotiation skills and mediatory techniques appropriate for the stage of the dispute.

Typically, disputes escalate through five stages, each presenting different challenges. Edge Consult’s input at any of these stages can enhance your position, whilst aiming to prevent further escalation of your dispute.

Stage 1

Parties acknowledge there is a problem and wish to resolve it – We can provide technical input to identify a way forward and a methodology to prevent reoccurrence of the problem.

Stage 2

Parties start to identify each others failures whilst becoming increasingly defensive – We can help identify the strength and weakness of the respective positions and offer potential compromise solutions, to maintain co-operation.

Stage 3

Parties develop perceptions that may not reflect the reality of the situation – We can provide a detailed analysis of the problem, make recommendations and ensure appropriate record keeping is maintained – just in case.

Stage 4

Parties become progressively uncooperative, with a desire to win their argument – We can provide a last chance facilitation workshop, whilst ensuring our client is in a robust contractual position, should the dispute escalate to adjudication or other dispute process.

Stage 5

Parties consider formal dispute resolution, such as adjudication, as the only solution – We can provide a full adjudication support service, be it as a Party Representative or working along side lawyers, providing technical support on matters such as time, cost and/or contractual support.
