Basic Construction Law
Chances are that at one time or another a project superintendent will become involved in a legal proceeding caused by a dispute between the contractor, client, design consultants, subcontractor, or supplier or even an employee of the company. Our society is quick to sue when wronged, and with more than 700,000 attorneys practicing in the United States (one for every 5 square miles) there are plenty of litigators ready, willing and able to assist those who wish to pursue legal action. The purpose of this chapter is not to create more “guard house” lawyers but to familiarize the project superintendent with the more common types of disputes and claims, why they occur and what should be done if one looms on the horizon.
