About The Event

Continuing with the “Spirit of SOPL” roadshow, this webinar focuses on the recent development in natural justice in adjudication proceedings in the UK, providing lessons learnt in the conduct of adjudication for adjudicators to be appointed under the new “SOP Spirit” adjudication scheme in the public sector.

Our speaker is:

Robert Evans predominately acts as arbitrator, adjudicator and mediator in international and domestic disputes. He began his career as a civil engineer, working for international consultants and contractors in the UK and in Hong Kong, and was subsequently called to the Bar in 1989. Robert utilises his strong civil engineering background and is often instructed in disputes with highly technical issues as a result. 

Robert is a CEDR accredited mediator, and a member of the Institution of Civil Engineers’ panels of arbitrators and adjudicators. He is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators and is currently chairman of the ICE Dispute Resolution Panel. Robert has successfully mediated a number of remote mediations during the COVID-19 lockdown using many of the main video platforms, and has provided expert evidence on English law in Spanish Civil Court proceedings.

As counsel, Robert specialised in construction, engineering and energy disputes and professional negligence work in the UK and abroad. He brings this experience to his arbitration and mediation practice. In addition, he has a particular interest in yacht and boat design and construction and has been involved in a number of ship-building disputes, including military vessels.

Robert is a supporter of and signatory to the World Mediators Alliance on Climate Change (WoMACC) Green Pledge. He has committed to minimising the environmental impact of each mediation in which he is involved in the ways outlined in the Pledge, including avoiding unnecessary travel and using electronic technology wherever possible, and encouraging those with whom he mediates similarly to minimise their carbon emissions. The full pledge can be found at
