Construction Law Litigation Strategies is an authoritative, insider's perspective on best practices for resolving construction disputes. Featuring partners and chairs from some of the nation's leading firms, these experts guide the reader through the intricacies of a construction case from start to finish, discussing key strategies for understanding the history of a project, obtaining relevant documents for submission of a claim, analyzing and interpreting contract specifications, selecting and retaining experts, and ultimately determining the best course of action to take: to mediate, arbitrate, litigate, or settle. These top lawyers give tips on drafting contracts to avoid breaches resulting from contractors, defective construction management, design errors or emissions, and unforeseen events or unknown conditions. Additionally, these leaders reveal their strategies for meticulously examining the facts, keeping abreast of state and federal construction laws, and finding creative solutions to avoid litigation. The different niches represented and the breadth of perspectives presented enable readers to get inside some of the great legal minds of today as these experienced lawyers offer up their thoughts around the keys to success within this ever-evolving area of law. Inside the Minds provides readers with proven business intelligence from C-Level executives (Chairman, CEO, CFO, CMO, Partner) from the world's most respected companies nationwide, rather than third-party accounts from unknown authors and analysts. Each chapter is comparable to an essay/thought leadership piece and is a future-oriented look at where an industry, profession, or topic is headed and the most important issuesfor the future. Through an exhaustive selection process, each author was hand-picked by the Inside the Minds editorial board to author a chapter for this book.
