COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT​

Construction Law

Let’s start with the basics on how to approach the fundamental questions in real estate. Check out our frequently asked questions when it comes to both residential real estate, and commercial real estate. 

Partner disputes involving each party’s rights and responsibilities to a contract are at the top of our list for representation. We look to break down the arrangement and see how best it should be interpreted to look at how a judge, juries, and arbitrators could apply the facts of a particular case.

Construction defects are a crucial focus of litigation disputes in the construction industry. When it comes to the quality, design, systems, or materials used on a project in faulting parts of a building or structure, it causes damage to the property or persons, usually resulting in financial harm to the owner.

The key differences between mediation and arbitration are who has the power to decide a decision. For mediation, the parties involved in the dispute decide whether or not to agree to a settlement. This type of conflict resolution will include some kind of written document, but the mediator between the parties has no real power to enforce the agreement. An arbitration with an arbitrator gives the power to decide the case between the parties has the power.
