Resolving construction disputes

When a dispute arises between a Nevada construction company and its client, figuring out a workable solution can be difficult. Both parties can suffer financially from an ongoing disagreement, especially when a lawsuit is involved. The optimal strategy for this situation is to prevent it from happening in the first place, but having remedies available when a dispute does arise is important.

Preventing a dispute requires careful planning and attention to detail. The most common problems arise from lack of understanding, incomplete claims and delays. While a dispute in itself doesn’t necessarily mean there has been a contract violation, it can rise to that level quickly. All parties involved should carefully read and understand the contract, negotiate vague points to make them clearer, document all issues and make sure expectations are realistic.

Once a dispute arises, there are several tactics for resolution available. For example, the parties can negotiate on certain terms before escalating action. They can also use a mediator to resolve a specific issue through discussion and compromise. Another option is to use an adjudicator or arbitrator who will make a neutral decision. If all else fails, litigation is always an option.

All parties involved in contract disputes can benefit from the support, guidance and representation of a lawyer. Contracts are often long documents with complex legal language that can be difficult to interpret. In some situations, a lawyer might encourage their client to negotiate some kind of agreement. They may also suggest going to court if it best represents the interests of the client. An attorney with experience in an industry relevant to the dispute will be positioned to provide the right support.
