Solving Litigation Issues With Minimal Cost
When matters need to go to court, costs often grow. Attorney’s fees, filing fees, the time spent on your part when you could be building your business and more all combine to make construction litigation an expensive prospect. However, it is sometimes necessary.
At Troppito Miller Griffin, LLC, we have worked with many construction-adjacent clients. We know that litigation can take time and money that you’d rather spend elsewhere, and we work to resolve matters as efficiently as possible, using alternative dispute resolution methods when able.
Alternative Methods Of Resolving Matters Exist
Because we have helped many contractors, subcontractors and businesses resolve litigation efficiently and effectively over the past 10 years, we know how to avoid the courtroom in many cases. We are familiar with methods of alternative dispute resolution, including:
- Mediation is collaborative. The parties work together to try to find an acceptable compromise, with the help of a neutral third party as mediator.
- Arbitration is more similar to the traditional court process. Both sides will still testify and give evidence.
Both these can reduce the cost of litigation simply because they are more collaborative. Courtroom litigation can quickly become expensive because it requires so much time, while these methods can resolve issues more quickly and therefore keep costs down.
These tools can be helpful but a good lawyer is indispensable in this process. Particularly in the world of construction, many people have disputes across state lines. A local law firm with an experienced attorney can provide representation that is familiar with local courts and judges as well as the state’s rules and regulations.
