Most construction disputes arise from differing interpretations of contractual terms. Sometimes an owner and a contractor, or a contractor and a subcontractor, may disagree as to the exact meaning of a specification in the agreement. Sometimes, one side believes it is not getting what it contracted for, and other times, both parties take issue to the current state of the project. Whatever your construction dispute may be, we can help resolve it:

  • Differing Site Conditions: Have you encountered latent physical conditions on your construction project that were unknown at the time of contract formation? We can help you understand the options available to you.
  • Scheduling Issues: Are you being asked to accelerate your production beyond your initial schedule? This may necessitate major changes in project-manning requirements and even affect other projects you are working on. We can protect your rights.
  • Time Delays: If a time delay is doing significant damage to your project, we can help you get the work permits and access needed to get up to speed.

Alternative Dispute Resolution

You don't have to pursue litigation in order to protect your rights in a construction dispute. While litigation is a viable option, it is most often more costly and time-consuming than negotiation. We can represent your best interests in mediation or arbitration; if your rights are still not being protected, we are ready to go to court to get you the results you deserve.

Public Bidding Laws

When a public owner is accepting bids from contractors, there are certain rules and regulations that must be followed. You cannot submit a bid for a public contract in the same way that you would negotiate a private contract. We can help you understand the process.
