Construction Disputes

Construction disputes arise from conflicts between parties involved in construction projects. These disputes can involve issues like contract breaches, payment disputes, construction defects, and delays. Artemis Law Group offers specialized legal counsel to navigate complex contractual obligations, regulatory requirements, and industry standards to resolve disputes and secure the most favorable outcomes possible.

What Are Construction Disputes?

Construction disputes involve conflicts arising during the planning, execution, or completion of construction projects. These disputes can arise from various sources, including disagreements over contract terms, delays in project timelines, defective workmanship or materials, payment disputes, or regulatory compliance issues. Additionally, disputes may involve multiple parties, including property owners, contractors, subcontractors, architects, engineers, and suppliers.

Identifying and resolving construction disputes requires careful analysis of contractual obligations, project documentation, and applicable laws and regulations. Our skilled construction attorneys can help facilitate negotiations, mediations, or arbitrations to reach resolutions. However, when necessary, litigation may be pursued to enforce contractual rights, seek compensation for damages, or resolve disputes through court proceedings.

Common Reasons for Construction Disputes:

  • Disagreements over contract terms, scope of work, pricing, or timelines
  • Construction defects due to faulty workmanship, defective materials, or design errors
  • Disputes regarding project delays impacting schedules and deadlines
  • Non-payment, payment disputes, or issues with change orders
  • Violations of building codes, zoning regulations, or environmental requirements
  • Disputes arising from changes in project scope, specifications, or requirements
  • Disagreements over warranty coverage, repairs, or replacements
  • Conflicts with subcontractors regarding performance, payment, or responsibilities
  • Disagreements over safety protocols, regulations, or liability for accidents
  • Disputes related to environmental impact assessments, permits, or remediation efforts
