What makes a good construction lawyer? While every lawyer needs to know the law, in order to be a good construction lawyer – it is quintessential to understand the industry and the inner workings of construction projects. Video games, like Minecraft, have the potential to provide people with a rudimentary or conceptual understanding of construction.
In Ontario and other common-law jurisdictions, legal disputes are subject to what is known as an “adversarial” process. Many lawyers take this approach too close to heart. While lawyers may be skeptical of ADR, perhaps we should begin relationships with opposing counsel from a position of trust rather than combat.
