This talk at The Academy of Experts will look at the increasing trend to use collaborative contracts and a growing focus on including mechanisms that are designed to identify and resolve disputes before they escalate, seeking to avoid the traditional forms of dispute resolution. This is the case in particular in the construction industry but the same approach will be relevant to others sectors and the talk will be an opportunity to consider how the role of the expert may change when taking part in such different forms of dispute resolution.
This is an excellent opportunity for experts to hear from an experienced practitioner about changes as they are happening.
Following the talk members are invited to stay for a drink and the opportunity to network at The Academy of Experts in Gray’s Inn.
