Construction Disputes / Litigation

Construction disputes cover a wide variety of issues.  Some of the most common types of construction disputes include:

  • Construction delays
  • Failure to perform
  • Breach of contract
  • Payment disputes
  • Design specifications
  • Construction defects
  • Negligent supervision
  • Building code compliance
  • Errors or omissions

If you are in the middle of a construction project and it is delayed, you may suffer significant financial hardship.  Delays can cause you to lose money and will also cause inconvenience.  If the property is to be rented, you will lose the ability to rent the premises.  Before you make any decisions consult a qualified attorney who will work with you to advise you of the best course of action.

In many cases, you’ll want to fire the contractor and finish the work with a different company.  However, before you do this you must first make sure that you have satisfied the statutory guidelines for construction defect claims.  In most cases, the contractor must be given notice and must be allowed an opportunity to review the claim and make repairs.

An experienced attorney will handle the following types of construction disputes:

  • Construction Transaction
  • Construction Litigation
  • Construction Defects
  • Mechanics Liens

Your attorney will work to determine the best course of action.  Most construction dispute litigation begins with negotiation and mediation if needed.  If no resolution or settlement is attained, the case will proceed to court.  The attorney is prepared to take your case to court to resolve it in your favor.
