Construction Disputes

Construction disputesConstruction projects are inherently risky. A poorly managed project can easy have overruns twice its original budget. Many projects are one-of-a-kind, involving participants who have never worked together before and have their own interests to satisfy. Construction projects are also notoriously fraud-ridden. These risks threaten both large and small construction projects and, if realized, can impact a company’s ability to conduct business as usual. Should a project go astray, it can become a huge management distraction and lead to litigation that can last for years—and result in massive unanticipated costs.
