CEDR Solve, the services arm of the Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution (CEDR), is relaunching its Adjudicator Nominating Body (ANB) service for construction disputes by forming a panel of the UK’s leading adjudicators.
CEDR Solve is the UK's leading Alternative Dispute Resolution provider and runs Europe’s largest commercial mediation service.
CEDR Solve is also removing the referral fee commonly demanded when an adjudicator is appointed. This represents an instant saving for the parties of up to £500. CEDR Solve has also reduced the maximum time to nominate an adjudicator from 5 days to 3 days.
Parties using the CEDR Solve service will have access to 32 of the best-known and respected adjudicators in the country, with thousands of construction adjudications, mediations and arbitrations between them.
The Panel Members are Peter Aeberli, Matthew Bastone, Tony Bingham, David Canning, Michael Conway, Chris Dancaster, Delia Dumeresq, Mark Entwistle, Philip Eyre, Robert Gaitskell QC, Karen Gough, Nicholas Gould, Kevin Hayes, Rosemary Jackson QC, Bob Juniper, Colin Little, Franco Mastrandrea, Christopher Miers, David Miles, Matt Molloy, Eric Mouzer, Mark Pontin, John Price, Derek Pye, Colin Reese QC, Nigel Ribbands, John Riches, Victoria Russell, Robert Sliwinski, Neville Tait, Peter Talbot and Peter Vinden.
Andzrej Grossman, Director of CEDR Solve, said “Adjudication has been around for a decade with remarkably little done by ANBs to make the nomination of adjudicators more cost-effective whilst at the same time giving users confidence that the adjudicators they are nominating really are the best around.”
CEDR Solve has also updated its Rules for Adjudication, which now incorporates mediation, to allow parties to reach their own agreement if they wish, within the parameters of statutory obligations.
