Dispute Resolution

Alternative Resolutions that Work with your Best Interest in Mind

Whether it’s due to delays, defects, or just simply bad faith, the business of construction tends to be rife with disputes.  The construction law practice at McNamee Hosea offers industry-experienced and practical legal services to both prevent disputes and to expertly handle them when they do arise. Unlike many construction law practices, we pursue our client’s goals using our reliable litigation skills not simply as a last result, but as an effective tool to realize our clients’ needs and goals.  We’re committed to representing construction businesses, contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, and homeowners alike.


Our construction practice assists contractors and construction-related businesses in avoiding and overcoming the inevitable hurdles in their paths to success. We strive to be proactive in our representation to set companies up for success and to minimize the potential of disputes. However, when disputes cannot be avoided, the experienced litigation attorneys are equipped to help our clients toward resolution. Our attorneys are practiced in a wide range of disputes and litigation issues and strive to advise our clients through the often stressful and sometimes uncertain process of litigation.

In addition to our construction attorneys being skilled litigators, they are also effective in alternative dispute resolution techniques to ensure clients a cost effective resolution outside of the courtroom, including arbitration and mediation.


Often preferable to litigation, arbitration has become a popular alternative to resolving construction related disputes, which a number of advantages to the parties involved, including:

  • Resolution directed through individuals with construction experience, knowledge and unique understanding of the construction process and   responsibilities of respective parties
  • Reduction in fees and costs based on reduced length of arbitration versus litigation
  • Faster results. Disputes resolved through arbitration can last between weeks and months, where a trial could last for a year or longer


Our experienced construction lawyers also use mediation as another method for dispute resolution. Mediation may be contractually obligatory or simply consensual among the parties involved.  Our attorneys are specialized in resolving disputes through mediation and using it as a means to protect our client’s interests in the most cost effective manner.
