Effective Resolution Of Construction Disputes

Construction disputes are usually costly, and more than that, destructive of schedules. Many worthwhile and major projects have been terminated midway, and multiple contractual parties are the losers.

Whether you are an owner, developer, contractor, subcontractor or architect/engineer, you need the protection of lawyers versed in construction litigation and skilled in resolving these disagreements to your advantage.
