Construction Litigation and Disputes

Construction projects are often high risk with tight profit margins, and disputes can arise at any stage of the construction process, from the negotiation of contract scope at the beginning of a project to disputes over performance during and after a project’s completion. At Hicks Thomas LLP, we’re prepared to solve complicated construction issues and disputes. Through negotiation, litigation or arbitration, we pursue legal solutions that protect our clients’ reputations and investments.
