Construction Law

Resolving Disputes When Possible
Litigating When Necessary

Time matters in the construction industry, and managing time-consuming disputes and litigation can often mean costly delays for everyone involved in a project. On top of that, with every phase of construction accompanied by many intertwined business, financial and legal concerns, it’s essential that you minimize risk and mitigate any issues that arise. HPLP maintains a focus on claims prevention and dispute avoidance techniques.

When disputes do arise, our attorneys at HPLP make it a priority to resolve construction disputes and legal claims in a timely and cost–effective manner, using negotiation and alternative dispute resolution processes — such as mediation and arbitration — whenever advisable. We have experience litigating disputes in trial and appellate courts, giving us the tools and knowledge to defend your rights in court when an optimal resolution cannot be reached through other avenues.
