Consider mediation for your next construction dispute
Abstract: A contractor who stays in business long enough will likely encounter a situation with an owner or developer that can’t be resolved with a simple chat. In such situations, lengthy and expensive litigation may seem inevitable — and if not that, a binding arbitration hearing. But there’s another alternative to consider: mediation. This article explains what’s involved in the mediation process, and shows how it can be quicker, cheaper, more flexible and less headache-inducing than arbitration or litigation.
