Solutions That Work
The key to resolving complex construction disputes often begins long before a construction project even starts. In many cases, having a strong, legally binding contract to perform such work can help your company to avoid potential pitfalls.
But even if construction work has already begun and the contract has been finalized, your contract can be the most important piece of evidence in your case. Whether you're the one who hired the construction company or you own the construction company, your construction project contract will likely dictate the outcome of your case.
That's why our law firm takes the time to carefully analyze your construction contract. We also regularly review inspection reports, hiring practices and discuss our findings with experts in their field for further analysis.
