Issues arise with every construction. But what separates the projects that complete successfully from those mired in litigation? Whether it is early intervention to nip catastrophe in the bud or proactive management before problems arise, there are some easy guidelines you can follow to minimize risk.
Litigation is frequently unavoidable, but should always remain your last alternative. Keep expectations clear and communications open, keep an open mind to reasonable solutions and engage help from an early stage. If legal action cannot be avoided, in many cases the fallout can be managed and overall impacts minimized. Contrary to what some may complain, at the end of the day, most people are simply trying to figure out how to get the job done.
