Organizations within the construction industry face unique concerns when conflicts arise with customers, suppliers, contractors and project partners.  The use of the collaborative process can lessen or eliminate these concerns.

Collaborative Law is a method of dispute resolution in which parties hire specially trained attorneys who represent them throughout the process.  All parties to the dispute sign an agreement that they will negotiate a resolution and will not resort to litigation.  If the process is not effective in allowing the parties to reach agreement, the parties agree that their collaborative attorneys will not represent them in any future litigation of that matter.

Many disputes involve parties with generally successful working relationships, relationships both parties would like to preserve in spite of the immediate issues which may give rise to litigation.

Some of the advantages of the collaborative process over litigation are as follows:

Full disclosure means reduced discovery costs
Possible use of neutral experts as opposed to “dueling experts”
Control over the outcome

For all of these reasons, parties wishing to maintain important business relationships may choose to participate in the collaborative process when difficult issues arise. Many believe that the process itself can lead to better communication of difficulties before they rise to the level which may otherwise result to litigation, thus improving the overall atmosphere in which business is conducted.
