Developers, Contractors, Sub-contractors, Architects, Engineers, and Owners associated with a construction project can benefit by the application of Collaborative Practice. A serious construction dispute may halt a project for months-even years. Parties need a quick resolution to remain on schedule, avoid penalties and interest, complete the project, and free capital for other endeavors. By placing a clause in the contract that all parties will consult with trained Collaborative lawyers before proceeding to any other form of dispute resolution, parties can opt to settle matters quickly, privately, and confidentially before their disputes develop into full-blown litigation.
