I have a construction dispute, what should I do?

When it is comes to construction disputes, it is important to understand that construction law is a very complex area that poses many challenges. Though business owners or individuals embroiled in a construction dispute may think they can handle the matter themselves, given the intricacies, the fact that multiple parties may be involved, and the general the complexity of this area of law, seeking legal advice may be beneficial.

Dunlap Fiore LLC has experienced lawyers who, regardless of the construction problem you are facing in your business, can examine and evaluate your case and provide legal options. Generally in construction settings, disputes can arise at any time between various entities involved on a project such as equipment suppliers, general contractors, subcontractors, engineers and more. Since construction projects go through different stages and general and subcontractors may rely on each other to finish one part of the project before the other part can be started, a dispute between two or more parties can adversely impact the entire project, causing significant delays.

Such disputes can range from non-payment of services rendered, faulty design, defective or subpar work, lien and delay claims and potentially claims for additional work. Furthermore, in most cases, construction projects may also need regulatory approval. Regulatory oversight may add another layer of complexity.

Attorneys’ at Dunlap Fiore LLC can help formulate effective legal strategies to ensure that a construction dispute is resolved as favorably as possible. Alternate dispute resolution techniques such as negotiation, mediation and arbitration may be used to reach an agreement. However, if an agreement cannot be reached between the parties, then litigating the matter may be the only option.
