About The Event

Statutory adjudication in construction disputes in the UK has now been operational for 25 years. Philip will talk about the results of a recent comprehensive survey concerning the said dispute resolution process from the perspective of the users of such process for the resolution of construction disputes in the UK, which survey was designed to find out what users like and dislike about the process, in particular with a view to determining and discussing with the attendees at the talk whether Hong Kong can learn any lessons from the UK experience so far as its proposed SOP legislation is concerned.
