Adjudicator should disclose involvement in second adjudication involving one of the parties
Beumer Group UK Ltd v Vinci Construction UK Ltd  BLR Plus 44,  EWHC 2283 (TCC), 13 September 2016
This is an interesting decision which grapples with the question of an adjudicator’s conflict of interest and duty to disclose
involvement in other related adjudication proceedings. The background was that Beumer applied for the enforcement of an adjudication
decision against Vinci, but Vinci challenged enforcement on grounds of natural justice. Specifically, Vinci argued that the
adjudicator should have disclosed his simultaneous involvement in another adjudication involving Beumer, because Beumer had
advanced inconsistent cases in the two adjudications.
