Description

Swimming with the Sharks: Architects and the Arbitration Process

Credits: 1 AIA LU


Program Description

For many years the AIA, and the rest of the construction industry, has included arbitration as the preferred means to resolve legal disputes arising in the construction process. At one time, arbitration was a fairly informal process (parties often participated without attorneys), but over the years it has increased in complexity and expense. The Architect's role in the arbitration process has also become more complex, creating potential conflicts and liability. This seminar is intended to review what the Architect can expect in the arbitration process, and explore some potential traps and how to avoid them or mitigate their effects.
