Frustration with the legal system has led many in the construction industry to question the value of both litigation and arbitration as a means of resolving disputes. As a result, they have been looking at alternative dispute resolution options, whether ADR itself, mediation, adjudication or expert determination.

This volume looks at ADR and construction contracts, and considers experience overseas, including the USA, Australia and Hong Kong.
