Construction Litigation Explained: Our expert services can help get you out of a real mess


Nobody wants to get into a legal dispute over a construction or renovation project, but the reality is that these things occur all the time. If you have an issue with how a project turned out, construction litigation may be a viable option for you.

What is construction litigation?

When there is a dispute over a building or renovation project, or anything related to the “built environment”, construction litigation is a legal avenue available to all parties, including owners, strata council, developers, general contractors, subcontractors, material suppliers, etc.

The scale of the construction project does not matter as litigation is available to everyone from individual residential properties to large-scale development projects.

What type of disputes fall under construction litigation?

Construction litigation covers a wide range of topics and issues, including:

  • Builders’ liens (non-payment)
  • Claims against design professionals
  • Deficiency claims
  • Delay claims
  • Insurance
  • Leaky condos
  • Municipal liability
  • Tender disputes
