By their very nature, construction projects carry a significant level of risk and potential for a dispute. In New Orleans, these construction disputes are often the result of a lengthy construction process that requires the cooperation, coordination, and interdependency of different suppliers, trades, and professionals. Disputes can arise from the complexity and magnitude of work, aggressive deadlines, numerous contracting parties, overly dense yet ambiguous contract documents, faulty bidding, financial issues, and communication problems among the parties.
