Construction Project Disputes


Construction Project Disputes

Oftentimes, disputes in construction projects are a result of unclear expectations or a subcontractor’s poor quality workmanship. To combat these disputes, you need to establish a contract that addresses these common issues by outlining precise expectations and project work accountability, particularly in regards to subcontractor liability. A well-drafted contract will eliminate disagreements, quickly resolve issues, and preserve relationships.

When there are contract disputes in construction, MNCLS manages the resolution process. Our job is to help contractors work through the project dispute by enforcing the contract or determining additional courses of action. We know how to quickly and carefully resolve problems and disputes on construction projects that preserve customer relationships and subcontractor partnerships in an economical and nondisruptive manner.

Construction Project Disputes

Common Issues

We have resolved numerous types of construction contract disputes and understand how to assess the facts and identify how to respond. Our resolution process includes consideration of the contractor’s concerns to ensure we handle the dispute from both a legal and business perspective. Disputes in construction projects are often a time consuming and costly encounter, but MNCLS eases the process by resolving the conflict and drafting contracts that insulate our clients from potential contract disputes in construction.

We help you answer this question; this is a critical role that MNCLS provides when receiving a case. We listen to your story and examine the available options to recommend a strategy for solving the dispute using both our business and legal expertise.

As both attorneys and business partners, MNCLS develops collaborative solutions that firmly oppose unjust claims while being mindful of the business and relationship impacts. We consult on what options will provide the most value for your business now and in the future.

In all honesty, resolving disputes through the legal system is not cheap. It’s why avoiding them altogether is the best option, and having good contracts that narrow the issues over which there is a dispute is the second-best option. Trying to work out a reasonable resolution where you control the outcome is our goal.

If the legal route is the only option, we gather the information we need about the dispute to evaluate your options and share the available choices with the realistic cost for each. We provide an informed recommendation on the best course of action.
