Vacations are a time when individuals and families can enjoy themselves. A recent survey showed that 37% of families are the happiest when they are on vacation. Within the next 12 months, 52% of the worldwide survey participants responded that they expected to take a vacation at the beach. Many of these vacationers may be staying at timeshares.

If you work in construction and haven’t considered hiring a construction lawyer, perhaps it is time to rethink the way you run your business. Construction law is a rapidly growing concentration in law and plenty of employers and workers in the construction industry can and should have these litigation attorneys in their corners in the event that they are needed to settle a dispute. In 2015 alone 551 cases involving construction law were fought, valuing at a combined total of 5.5 billion dollars. That’s a lot of money that construction employees obviously don’t want to let slip by the wayside, so lawyers dealing with the construction companies are always working at the top of their game to ensure that they are able to keep track of every penny and gain the approvals that the construction companies require.

The world of construction is a hugely important one, but a world that many of us do not give much thought to. Seeing construction in the world around us is, in many ways, a part of every day life. We see construction, we complain about construction, and we wait for the construction to end and then we admire the results of said construction proceedings. However, many people do not realize all that goes into the construction process, and why it matters. From employee disputes to builders risk coverage, there are many things that must be considered before a construction project ever begins, during the process of the construction, and after it as well. Construction is all about innovation, but it takes risks too. There are a number of things that can go wrong in construction as well, something that construction companies throughout the United States need to prepare for.
Having a lawyer on board is part of that preparation. When it comes to lawyers, there are a number of different kinds th (more…)
