Parties may adjudicate during the project or after it, or while another form of dispute resolution is in progress. 7. 30] Tried and tested process. Statutory adjudication has been available since 1998.

2 Do I have a claim? 05] Determining whether there is a legal and factual basis for a claim, and if so whether it is sufficiently strong, should be the very first step in the process of deciding whether or not to formalise a dispute. If the case has no real prospect of success, all other things being equal, the sensible approach must surely be either to accept the opponent’s view or reach as good a compromise as possible. The emphasis is on whether the claim, or elements of it, is sufficiently strong that it merits referral to adjudication or similar.

13] Before the start of any adjudication, the party and/or its advisers should carry out a detailed analysis of each element of its case, evaluating in money terms what the likely recovery of each of those elements might be. One way to do this is to assess each element within a range, selecting a value that represents a worst case outcome, likely outcome or best case outcome; or to put it another way low, medium or high. For example, a party might consider that its claim for disallowed costs articulated to the contractor at £300,000 will in fact yield a recovery of £100,000 at its lowest, most likely £200,000 and at the most £300,000.
