In less than a week, WPL Publishing will hold a webinar to help a wide variety of professionals within the construction industry understand and address the many forms of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) available to them.

Numerous ADR techniques have been developed and implemented, all with the end goal of resolving disputes without resorting to traditional, time-consuming, and expensive litigation. The webinar discusses nearly 30 forms of ADR that are being used in the construction industry. While some techniques are merely variations of a theme, all are different, and all have advantages and disadvantages that should be considered prior to selection. The various forms of ADR are presented in logical order, following a dispute from the project site to the adjudicative forum. To register for the 90-minute webinar, scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 19, 2014, at 1:00 p.m. (EST), visit http://tinyurl.com/jw9grlg.

During the webinar, attendees will learn about pre-dispute dispute-resolution methods. The program also will enable them to review dispute-resolution methods during the initial claims and dispute phase. In addition, they will become conversant with ADR during litigation.

Addressing attendees will be David Halligan, associate director in the Global Construction Practice of Navigant Consulting Inc., and Navigant Construction Forum Executive Director James Zack.
