When a dispute arises over the construction contract, or rules of the project, it oftentimes requires a third-party to help mediate and navigate the solution. When each party is deeply involved in the project, small disputes can grow out of proportion as communication becomes more difficult. As an experienced construction lawyer, we know how to address each party’s concerns while protecting the rights and interests of our clients to streamline the communication process and resolve the dispute.
For construction contract disputes, there are multiple options to consider when trying to resolve the issue. After analyzing the issues in dispute, we help you understand your position and rights while providing available resolution options that are best for your case. The validity of your case is highly individualized and dependent on the contract.
We start by analyzing the contract to understand the initial rules of the game. From there, we outline both the non-legal and legal resolution options. Depending on the situation, we will recommend and lead clients through non-legal routes that will safeguard their business. Yet, if the dispute has unreasonable expectations or we need to press our client’s position in the dispute, we have the legal expertise to protect our clients.
We are as comfortable working with opposing counsel for early resolution as we are with taking more complex options such as mediation, arbitration, or trial.
The cost is largely determined by the willingness of both parties to solve the dispute quickly and efficiently. As the dispute heightens, so does the cost. Ultimately, if the contract addresses the dispute issues, then it will easily negate the claims; this is why we keep explaining to clients the importance of having a well-drafted comprehensive construction contract.
