This fourth edition of Sir Peter Coulson's highly regarded work on construction adjudication, widely considered to be the leading authority in the field, continues to provide comprehensive analysis of the law and practice of adjudication in construction and engineering disputes.
Thoroughly revised with reference to over 80 new adjudication cases, the new edition of this popular title also provides an analysis of the increase in 'smash and grab' payment claims brought by contractors based on the procedural omissions of the employer. The book has also expanded to cover developments in the Technology and Construction Court's (TCC) practice and procedure for dealing with 'smash and grab' claims, and includes practical guidance from the TCC and Commercial Court as to the
necessary ethical principles to be adopted by adjudicators.
This work is the definitive guide to the law and practice of construction adjudication, making it an essential reference work for all those involved with construction law.
