ConsensusDocs Webinars Dive into Alternative Dispute Resolution in Construction

ConsensusDocs is offering three separate, related webinars, each led by industry experts, to delve specifically into mediation, arbitration, and dispute review boards (DRBs).

This presentation will provide valuable insights on how the parties' involvement plays a crucial role in resolving disputes and fostering strong working relationships.

"Unlocking the Advantages of Arbitration Over Litigation: Optimizing Time and Cost Savings" will be held on Thursday, July 18 at 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
