Approved for Mediation Credit
The CLE program "Mediating Complex Construction Disputes" was originally presented and recorded on October 5, 2020.
Construction projects, because they can, and often do, involve many moving parts, can be prone to complex disputes involving layers of parties, a multitude of contracts, and differing forms of insurance and bonds. And, “success” in construction is measured not merely by completion, but by completion on time, within budget, and to standards of quality and workmanship, all of which can be drivers of claims. Claims often emerge from conflicting interpretations of specifications or codes or other standards of practice and it is rare that there is single root cause of any given project dispute. For these reasons, construction disputes have the heightened potential for triggering very costly and protracted litigation, and therefore early dispute resolution is a critical tool in dealing with disputes that, if not timely resolved, may spell the end for some project participants. This program will offer an overview of the factors to be considered in preparing for, arranging, and conducting an early dispute resolution process in the complex construction setting, including document exchange, pre-mediation statements, expert disclosures, methods of caucusing and other techniques for moving the dispute to resolution.
