Interesting Points

Construction litigation, when compared with other commercial litigation, is especially lengthy and complex due to the large number of issues that can arise from a wide variety of matters ranging from the design of a building to the work done by constructors at all levels. It is common that a dispute, which originally arises between the employer and the main contractor, could eventually involve the designer, architect, engineer, sub-contractors, and even the suppliers into the litigation. Given its complex nature, one of the features of construction litigation is its use at Scott Schedules, which consist of columns that set out as the key issues, the disputed quantum and contentions on each side. Scott Schedules are often ordered by the court to enable the court to clearly define the issues between the parties.
