Expert Determination

Effective ADR

Expert Determination can be an effective ADR method for resolving costs disputes.

Expert Determination is a confidential process involving an independent expert who makes a binding decision (unless otherwise agreed by the parties) on technical issues. 

The expert has the authority to ask questions of the parties, subject to the procedures adopted at the
outset, before providing their decision. 

Expert determination can be an effective method for
resolving a technical issue or dispute. This ADR method is simpler and cheaper than court or
arbitration and can be used as a short cut but with the advantage that the outcome is binding if the parties wish it to be.
