The nature of the construction industry requires multiple parties to work together on projects. Although each party shares the common goal of completing every project on time and within budget while performing quality work, things don’t always go as planned.

Construction disputes can spring from a wide variety of situations. They often arise when there is a disagreement between parties with regard to performance or payment. You need the advice and counsel of an experienced construction attorney as soon as the dispute arises to preserve your legal claims, including lien rights.

Construction Arbitration

Most construction contracts contain provisions that require arbitration in the event of a dispute, but the rules and procedures regarding how to conduct the arbitration are generally not contained within the contract. Since arbitration is misunderstood by many in the construction industry, including attorneys, a command of the arbitration rules and procedures has a significant impact on the outcome of the arbitration.
