Hundreds of construction contracts are signed every day in the state of Tennessee. For every signed contract, there is a potential for a dispute between the contractual parties. Sometimes these disputes can be handled through a simple mediation. Some disputes may become adversarial which will require a more aggressive approach to remedy them.
Two of the most common sources of reconciliation for construction disputes are construction arbitration and construction litigation.
A Dedicated Nashville Construction Arbitration Lawyer
During an arbitration, an arbitrator or panel of arbitrators, will hear both sides of the dispute and make a legally binding decision for both parties. An arbitration is an alternative dispute resolution that may be ideal for some disputes because it is typically quicker, less expensive, and does not require a formal court appearance. A lawyer is not required, but a Nashville construction arbitration lawyer can provide expert guidance throughout the process.
How a Nashville Construction Litigation Attorney Can Help You
Due to the complexity and severity of some disputes, they may not be resolved through an alternative dispute resolution method. These disputes may require a more formal method of resolution. During a litigation, a judge or jury will view the cases from both sides of the conflict, review evidence (including interviews), and make a final ruling. A Nashville construction litigation attorney is critical to ensure that your rights are protected, risks are mitigated, and you walk away with less liabilities.
