Construction Litigation & Dispute Resolution
Not even the most well-managed businesses can avoid every disagreement on a construction project. Disputes in one form or another are bound to happen and invariably they will. Involving an experienced construction lawyer at the earliest stage of the dispute may help prevent it from becoming an impediment to the success of the project because -- as we all know -- disputes can cause significant delays and become extremely expensive.
The disruption of a construction project can have an impact on many other matters. It is essential to resolve disputes as quickly as possible in the construction industry. Mediation and arbitration are two alternative dispute resolution forums to litigation. If handled properly, both of these forums are capable of providing quicker, cheaper results than litigation.
