    Using Construction Contracts to Limit Time-Consuming Discovery in Arbitration

    European American Chamber of Commerce New York: The New York Times Building, 620 Eighth Avenue, 37th Fl., New York, NY 10018

    A hallmark of arbitration in the United States has been a limited discovery process. But, construction litigators know that a “limited discovery process” rarely means that there will be no discovery in the arbitration. In the current fast-paced, document-reliant construction environment, extensive e-discovery is often needed to fully understand the merits of a case, because many project teams rely heavily upon electronic project management systems and email communications to document and provide insight (and a time stamp) for a multitude of decisions made on a daily basis. Therefore, the potential for staggering costs and extensive delays that often accompany typical document discovery are present in all but the simplest of construction disputes.
