Resolving Corporate and Construction Disputes with Collaborative Law

In today's economy, all business people are looking for ways to cut costs. One budget item that can be substantially reduced is the expense associated with litigation. Corporations can cut overhead and construction companies can avoid unnecessary project delays by getting disputes resolved quickly and economically outside of the courthouse. Litigation involves more than legal fees; there are also costs related to the disruption of operations, delays, and the destruction of important business relationships. Companies are becoming aware of the fact that they can avoid the majority of these costs and strengthen and renew business relationships through the use of the collaborative process. This is your opportunity to take advantage of learning more about this innovative approach to dispute resolution.
