Just Law will always emphasis that you get everything in writing, as vigilant documentation is critical when faced with the proposition of resolving a variety of commercial construction disputes. Just Law has seen this time and time again in the construction industry, in which a dispute arises from undocumented change orders.
What this means is that a client requests a change or changes from the original agreement before the work actually is carried out, but isn’t documented or officially recorded, something of course, that would otherwise create a binding legal document. This can cause all sorts of problems, and unfortunately, often result in mediation or even a tribunal or court hearing.
As well communication issues and shifting prices and time frames, when it comes to building plans, project specifications, or the scope of the work itself, conflict can easily arise.
