When disputes arise during or after construction, a swift and proactive approach can be crucial to minimizing the costs involved. This includes not only the costs of the litigation itself, but also the costs of overruns, nonpayment, nonperformance, and loss of key business relationships. When we represent clients in construction litigation, we approach our clients’ cases from a broader perspective than simply seeking to resolve the dispute itself. We consider all potential outcomes and alternatives, and we advise our clients strategically with their long-term best interests in mind.
When facing a dispute in connection with a large-scale construction project, one of the first steps is to assess the costs and risks involved. This is true regardless of your company’s or firm’s posture in the dispute, and regardless of the stage at which the dispute arises. What are the substantive issues involved in the dispute? What do your contracts say about liability and dispute resolution? If the dispute were to go all the way to trial, how likely is it that your company or firm would achieve a favorable outcome in court?
As construction litigation counsel, these are just a few of the numerous questions we evaluate and consistently reevaluate for our clients. While we do not hesitate to go to trial when necessary, we strive to achieve efficient and favorable out-of-court results for our clients whenever possible.
