Serious disputes arising in construction are faced by construction and architectural design firms, contractors, sub-contractors, equipment and material suppliers, government authorities, developers and owners of real estate portfolios. Weir & Associates has been at the forefront of developing cost-effective alternatives to traditional construction, design and environmental related litigation. We combine our team’s skills with its technical and industry knowledge to provide a results-oriented approach that strives towards negotiating favorable settlements where possible, or proceeding to trial as necessary.
Our solicitors are experienced in a wide range of construction litigation. We have represented domestic and international clients in contractual disputes, architectural and engineering liability claims, building design defects liability, product liability and warranty claims, environmental concerns, public and private surety bond claims, construction liens, acceleration and delay damages claims. Alternative dispute resolution is often appropriate for settling construction litigation matters. Our expertise in arbitration, mediation and other dispute resolution formats has been invaluable in resolving disputes early and cost effectively.
Weir & Associates encourages clients to seek legal advice before entering into substantial contracts. Clients benefit from our lawyers’ experience in negotiating and drafting design and construction agreements, including architectural and engineering contracts, design-build, engineer-procure-construct (EPC) and construction management agreements. Through early communication and document preparation, our clients’ expectations are properly reflected within their contracts, where all eventualities are adequately considered so future disputes can be minimized.
