Cleveland, OH, United States, 2008/08/13 - Panel discussion will examine resolving construction-related disputes through mediation, litigation.
An expert from Buric will discuss how to effectively resolve global construction-related disputes during an upcoming national conference of Associated Owners & Developers.
David L. Sutton, PE, executive vice president, will participate in a panel discussion on the topic “Effectively Resolving Local and Global Disputes through Mediation, Arbitration or Litigation” Tuesday, Sept. 23, at 10 am, at the Four Seasons Hotel Midtown in Atlanta. The two-day conference will examine completing construction jobs on time, on budget and without lawsuits.
“Unfortunately, conflicts are inevitable in construction these days,” Sutton said. “Take a complex job and mix it with project changes, time constraints, vague contracts, poor communication, mixed levels of experience and motivation and different viewpoints, and the typical result is a dispute or claim. At Buric, we work hard to help owners and developers avoid or resolve disputes before they become costly litigious actions.”
