Dispute Resolution/Claims Consulting

In spite of the best efforts of all project participants, some projects encounter unexpected conditions or events which lead to claims and disputes. When these situations occur, Hawk’s experienced dispute-resolution personnel can help find equitable solutions to the most intractable construction-related problems.

Hawk experts have participated in resolving hundreds of construction disputes. We have served owners, general contractors, subcontractors, design firms, and bonding companies. Hawk works hard to find negotiated settlements to construction disputes. We often work with client counsel to establish facts, assess risks, and manage negotiations. If negotiations fail, Hawk prepares damage cases, expert reports, courtroom exhibits, and testifies as experts at trial.
