Spicer Rudstrom attorneys play a critical role in assisting you with construction disputes by providing legal counsel and advocacy to navigate the complexities of construction law and resolve disputes effectively. Here are several ways in which we can support facing construction disputes:

  • Contract Review and Analysis: Review construction contracts, subcontracts, and related documents to assess the rights and obligations of all parties involved, as well as to identify potential sources of disputes.
  • Dispute Resolution Strategies: Advise clients on the most appropriate dispute resolution methods, such as negotiation, mediation, arbitration, or litigation, based on the nature and complexity of the dispute.
  • Claims Management: Assist clients in preparing and responding to claims, change orders, delays, defects, and other issues that arise during construction projects, ensuring compliance with contractual requirements and applicable laws.
  • Risk Mitigation: Provide guidance on risk management strategies to minimize potential disputes, including the drafting of clear and comprehensive contracts, insurance coverage analysis, and compliance with regulatory requirements.
  • Litigation and Advocacy: In cases where disputes escalate to litigation, we can represent you in court, presenting your case effectively, conducting legal research, engaging expert witnesses, and advocating for your interests before judicial authorities.
  • Construction Defects and Liens: Help address construction defects, lien claims, and disputes related to payment and performance issues, protecting your rights under state-specific construction lien laws.
  • Regulatory Compliance: Ensure compliance with local building codes, zoning laws, environmental regulations, and industry standards, helping you avoid potential legal challenges and disputes.
  • Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR): Facilitate negotiations, mediation, and arbitration to reach settlements outside of court, offering a more cost-effective and efficient means of resolving disputes.
