Vancouver Construction Litigation Lawyers

Construction projects disputes cost everyone time and money. Whatever your position in such a dispute - as project owner, construction manager, contractor, subcontractor, or material supplier - it is important to have access to experienced legal counsel, such as McKechnie & Company. We have the skill, experience and knowledge about construction-related issues to provide the legal advice needed to effectively resolve the dispute in question.

We bring and defend all types of construction claims, from the simple to the most complex, such as those arising from:

  • Non-payment
  • Builders liens and claims arising under the Builders Lien Act
  • Delays
  • Deficiencies
  • Extra work
  • Design and construction defects
  • Other breaches of contract

Frequently construction disputes involve multiple parties with conflicting interests, and so can be extremely complex. Litigation may not be the most efficient way to resolve such disputes. Often, a compromised settlement achieved by informal negotiation or mediation is preferable as the fastest and cheapest way to resolve the issue and get the project back on track. We are knowledgeable and experienced with such alternative dispute resolution processes and the circumstances when they are best suited to achieving a favourable outcome. We pride ourselves on providing exceptional and professional legal service in a manner that is as prompt, efficient and cost-effective as possible.
