Although a good contract is excellent protection against disputes, there are times when the decision to litigate is either outside the client’s control, or necessary to address the wrongful, unreasonable, or outrageous conduct of another party. Applicable law may also force your hand. New Hampshire, for example, requires litigation in order to obtain and perfect a contractor’s lien. For these reasons, litigation has always been a substantial part of my practice, and I am experienced in all of its phases, including claims development, discovery, motion practice and trial. Since many of the standard forms for contractors require non-litigation alternatives, my experience also extends to arbitration hearings conducted privately, or through the American Arbitration Association, JAMS and other professional resolution dispute firms.
