Saskatchewan has experienced an increase in construction activity over the past decade. The economic tides driving this growth have benefited our province. However, they have also increased the number and scale of disputes in the industry.
PREVENTION IS THE BEST DISPUTE RESOLUTION TOOL
Conflicts in the construction industry often arise from poor communication, unclear expectations, inadequate record keeping and undue informality in conducting business. In many cases, parties do not include important terms in written contracts. Other times they are unaware of their rights and obligations under the law.
When unexpected problems arise, resolving them becomes more difficult and expensive. When a lot of money, time, and reputations are at stake, legal action often becomes necessary. Therefore, it is best to seek legal advice on how to conduct your affairs at each stage of your business dealings to avoid the prospect of higher costs and needless inconvenience.
IF DISPUTES ARE UNAVOIDABLE, YOU MAY NEED LEGAL REPRESENTATION
Sometimes, conflict is unavoidable even when parties are thorough in conducting their business affairs. If you are unable to resolve the dispute, you may need legal representation to fight for your interests.
Runyowa Law provides advisory, dispute resolution and litigation services to general contractors, sub-contractors and property owners. Common disputes involve deficiencies in construction, non-payment for work done on contracts, disagreements about the scope or nature of projects, and responsibility for cost overruns.
