Disputes on construction projects can range from a payment issue between two parties to a very complicated liability situation where the Owner, Contractor, Subcontractors and Suppliers are all pointing fingers at each other.
Retaining counsel to review the construction contract before the contract is signed and assist in negotiating contract terms may save you a lot of expense down the road caused by onerous contract clauses.
The general inclination may be to avoid getting legal counsel involved as long as possible in order to keep legal costs down or a belief that “getting the attorneys involved” will make a bad situation worse. In reality, retaining our law firm early before a contract is even signed can assist in mitigating your potential damages.
Contracts and the interrelationship of all parties in a construction project can be complicated, which is why it is prudent to seek the advice of legal counsel to identify the legal and contractual issues early on in a dispute and obtain an opinion on the strengths and weaknesses of your position.
If you are in the unfortunate position of being sued or having to sue on a construction dispute, our law firm will work to provide you effective legal representation while also being mindful of the costs of litigation. We will discuss with you a litigation budget and strategy so that you are fully informed of your options and estimated legal costs.
