Overview of Construction Disputes

Construction disputes arise when parties involved in a construction project disagree on terms, execution, or outcomes. 

These conflicts can stem from a variety of issues, including:

  • Delays
  • Budget overruns
  • Substandard work
  • Non-compliance with contractual obligations

Key stakeholders such as contractors, subcontractors, property owners, and material suppliers often find themselves at odds. These conflicts can lead to disruptions that can impact a project's timeline and financial health.

Resolution methods vary, but they commonly involve:

  • Mediation
  • Arbitration
  • Negotiation
  • Legal action

The goal in managing these disputes centers on reaching an agreement that satisfies all parties. By reaching a conclusion, the stakeholders can continue the project uninterrupted. 

Our firm excels in resolving these issues. We want to help make sure that your project remains on track, safeguarding your interests and investments.

Overview of Construction Defects

The term “construction defects” refers to construction work that falls below acceptable industry standards. 

These defects can manifest in various ways, such as:

  • Water intrusions
  • Structural failures
  • Poor workmanship
  • Electrical malfunctions

Such defects can compromise building integrity, safety, and functionality. Identifying and addressing these defects early helps prevent further damage and additional costs. 

It can be difficult for the at-fault parties to admit guilt. Quite simply, they don’t want to spend the time and money it takes to fix the problem. Our team can investigate your situation and help you diagnose the root causes of construction defects. Then, we can negotiate with all parties involved to rectify the problem quickly. We want to make sure you get your project done on time, and the parties who made mistakes are held accountable.

Our Construction Dispute Services

Mediation and Arbitration

These methods prioritize direct negotiation and conflict resolution, and they bypass the court system. Mediation involves a neutral third party. This person, the “mediator,” facilitates discussion between opposing parties to reach a mutual agreement. The process allows everyone involved to express their concerns, explore options, and openly agree on practical solutions. It also helps preserve business relationships. Those in conflict can have a cooperative dialogue rather than an adversarial confrontation.

Arbitration is a similar process, but the procedure is more formal. Each party presents their argument before an “arbitrator.” This person then makes binding decisions based on the evidence and claims presented. Arbitration is helpful in complex cases. It offers a generally quicker resolution than traditional court proceedings. 

Both methods save time. Mediation can last for only one meeting, and arbitration can take only a few sessions. Choosing these options also helps reduce costs. You don’t have to pay attorneys to prepare for each claim or for multiple days in court.

Our team understands the importance of a quick resolution to your construction defects and disputes. We can help you prepare for either mediation or arbitration. With our investigative skills, we can help you collect evidence for your claims, and we can help prove when the other party is wrong. If the other party is willing to work with you, we are here to help with dispute resolution services.

Litigation

Unfortunately, construction disputes often involve companies and clients who refuse to budge. Everyone is steadfast in their position, and no one is willing to resolve the matter. In cases such as these, it becomes necessary to take the matter to court. 

Courtroom litigation involves presenting the case before a judge and jury, but it is possible to remove the jury from the proceedings, depending on the circumstances. The court then examines the evidence each side presents and renders its decision. If your construction dispute must go to court, our firm stands ready to represent you vigorously. We can draw on our deep understanding of construction law and industry standards to help prove your case.

We prepare meticulously for civil trials, taking a comprehensive approach to your case. Our team can gather all necessary documentation, from contracts to communications. We may also use expert reports to build a strong foundation for your claim. Then, we work to articulate the issues clearly in court. Our team can help reveal how defects or disagreements have breached contracts or standards. Ultimately, our goal is to demonstrate how the problem impacted you, and we seek remedies that may include repairs, compensation, or specific performance.

Whether you are a builder or a client, a construction defect or dispute can have a huge impact on your operations. Our team is here to help you uncover the facts and get your project back on track. For a free consultation with our lawyer, contact us online today.
