Decades Of Construction Litigation Experience

Many aspects of a construction project can cause disputes and claims for damages. Contracts may not be honored, plans may not be adhered to and liabilities may be exposed. Contractors, developers and property owners may decide to include arbitration or mediation provisions in their construction contracts even before becoming involved in a construction litigation matter. Since mediation, arbitration and plenary litigation action each has its own pros and cons, work with an experienced lawyer before signing a contract.
