Dispute Resolution Boards (DRBs) provide a confidential forum and experts familiar with the technical issues associated with a construction project in order to prevent disputes or achieve their early settlement. This enables parties to remain focused on the project rather than the dispute, reducing the likelihood that a conflict will escalate until it results in arbitration or litigation.  This recorded webinar takes a comprehensive look at DRBs from the perspective of a trio of distinguished legal professionals with extensive construction expertise.

Areas covered include:

  • How the DRB works
  • Selecting the members of the DRB
  • When the use of DRBs is most advantageous and when it is not
  • The value of DRB on-site visits
  • Drafting contract clauses that include DRBs
  • Bringing claims to the DRB  and more.
