Below are just a few of the questions we receive.
The most common type of litigation to result from construction contracts is a breach of the contract. This is when there is a violation of the original contract, such as the construction will not be completed on time or there is a need for additional funds. A construction law attorney understands the specifics of construction contracts and know the best solutions specific to your company.
Construction litigation is when a dispute must be solved in court in front of a jury or judge while a construction arbitration is when a dispute is solved between the parties using a non-affiliated third party that evaluates the case and establishes a resolution. Litigation is considered the last solution because it demands more time and resources compared to arbitration, although is necessary in certain cases.
The best way to avoid construction litigation is to have an experienced construction law attorney develop or review the contract before the project begins. When a contract does not fully outline the scope of the project, it risks miscommunication and confusion between the parties that can lead to disputes and other conflicts. A business partnership with attorneys that specialize in construction laws and regulations will significantly decrease the chances of construction litigation.
