We understand that for most clients, the goal is to keep the project moving forward and ensure a successful completion of the construction or real estate investment. We will consider your long-term needs and help you to find the best approach to take to resolving your issues or disputes.
Many real estate and construction disputes can be resolved outside of court through arbitration, mediation or other methods of alternative dispute resolution. Finding alternatives to trial can help to preserve business and working relationships so a project can be taken to completion. Arriving at a negotiated settlement can also be much more cost-effective than going to trial. If trial is the only option, however, our Certified Trial Specialists will be by your side throughout the trial process.
The award winning construction and real estate litigation lawyers at Brown & Charbonneau, LLP have a reputation for trial advocacy and for vigorously representing our clients. Our strong reputation for client advocacy helps to facilitate settlement negotiations, as it is clear that our attorneys will be dedicated to fighting for the rights of our clients. When no settlement is reached, we are also ready to go the distance to make the most compelling arguments possible in court.
