Adjudication decisions awarded pursuant to the Construction Industry Payment and Adjudication
Act 2012 ("CIPAA") are often challenged in court, by way of setting aside applications under
section 15 of CIPAA and/or stay applications under section 16 of CIPAA. Practitioners tend to
rely on a fixed body of authorities in arguing these applications. However, in recent times, there
has been a new caselaw on sections 15 and 16 of CIPAA which could provide practitioners with a
fresh view on how to deal with these applications. In this webinar, the speakers will delve into
this new caselaw and discuss their effect on applications under sections 15 and 16 of CIPAA.
