Construction Law Attorney
Board-Certified Construction & Trial Lawyers
Trial and Arbitration in the area of Construction Law requires special expertise. Many lawyers have never been in trial or arbitration and don't have an understanding of the rules of procedure and evidence that is required for Construction Litigation. The construction law attorneys of Warner, Sechrest and Butts, PA are experienced in all phases and methods of dispute resolution. We have tried cases and arbitrated cases involving millions of dollars, and in some cases, just presenting evidence lasted several weeks.
What Is Construction Litigation & Arbitration?
Construction Litigation is the process of going through the the judicial system to resolve a dispute with a trial before a judge or jury.
Arbitration is the process of using paid fact finders, known as arbitrators, to hear evidence and rule upon dispute. Oftentimes arbitration is required by the construction contract documents. For example, many American Institute of Architects (AIA) form contracts provide for the arbitration of disputes among the various parties to a construction dispute.
