Since 1980, out attorneys, have resolved disputes between parties in the construction industry using more efficient and effective methods than litigation, such as mediation, arbitration, and dispute review boards. Our lawyers are committed to claims prevention and early dispute resolution because litigating a construction dispute can be expensive and time consuming.
Our attorneys work closely with our clients to develop a dispute resolution process such as mandatory negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and dispute review boards. Our attorneys also work with our clients to create dispute resolution clauses that require parties to meet and confer as early as possible after a dispute has arisen. The philosophy of our attorneys is to represent our clients with the goal to avoid and quickly resolve disputes.
Where a technical issue is at the forefront of a dispute, we work along with construction experts to fashion a quick and mutually fair resolution to a construction claim.
Mediation is always encouraged by our attorneys. Where the parties choose to arbitrate their dispute, we are proactive in working with opposing attorneys and the arbitrator to craft a process that is fast, fair, and economically efficient. Our attorneys are also well known mediators and arbitrators for cases throughout the Intermountain West.
The attorneys of Babcock Scott and Babcock serve as mediators and arbitrators for the State and Federal courts, the American Arbitration Association, Utah Dispute Resolution, and the Better Business Bureau. Our attorneys train arbitrators and mediators and are asked to speak and publish on dispute resolution. Our attorneys are also active members of the Dispute Resolution sections of the American Bar Association and the Utah Bar Association.
