Strategies to limit the chance of a construction contract dispute

Construction companies in Texas rely on contracts to establish the terms for price, schedule and building standards when setting up a project with investors. Many situations could cause a contract dispute to flare up, leading to minor delays or snowballing into costly breaches of contract. Most problems arise from the parties misunderstanding a contract, experiencing delays, failing to administer a contract or making unsubstantiated claims against other parties. Before any ground is broken, builders and investors can take proactive steps to reduce the possibility of misunderstandings and disputes.

How to handle a fiduciary breach in Texas

It is important to note that this relationship must exist in accordance with applicable laws.
