What We Can Do
Construction projects can be complex, which is why disputes are often challenging to resolve without a lawyer. Our attorneys understand the many components that must fit and work together – such as materials, tools, equipment, and large numbers of workers and personnel – and we are committed to keeping these factors in mind when advocating on behalf of our clients.
When clients are facing construction disputes, we closely evaluate their case to determine their available options and the most appropriate plan of action, which may include, among others:
Because of the high costs involved in resolving conflicts through litigation, more companies are turning to mediation. Mediation is a voluntary process by which all parties involved attempt to resolve disputes outside of the courtroom. During this process, a mediator comes in and acts as an unbiased, third-party who advises and helps parties come to some sort of solution or agreement. The idea is to find a middle ground solution that is beneficial for everyone. It is not meant to be a win or lose situation. Such a process can be highly beneficial for all involved as there is more control throughout the discussions and costs are kept low.
In order to avoid going to court, most construction contracts will include a measure for Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). Arbitration is one form of ADR. This form of conflict resolution allows the parties involved to pick an arbitrator who specializes in the specific issue at hand to come in and listen to the problem and provide a solution. There may be one arbitrator or an entire panel of arbitrators depending on the complexity of the issue. The benefit of using this method is that the professionals who arbitrate the conflict will receive full knowledge of the problem as well as already having an expertise in the area, whereby a judge will only have limited knowledge of the technical side.
