Early Resolution of an Owner’s Claim

When one of our contractor clients received an arbitration demand claiming a few million dollars in additional costs to complete a wastewater treatment plant, the contractor turned to Quarles & Brady not only to defend the claim, but to try and defend the claim in a way that would limit the damage to the client's relationship with its customer. We did just that. After taking a few key depositions and engaging in an early mediation, we were able to convince the owner to withdraw its demand without having to engage in extended dispute resolution proceedings.
