Richard P. Byrne's "Construction Claims: A Mediator's Perspective", has been published as a chapter in The American Bar Association's new book, "Resolving Insurance Disputes Before Trial"


Richard P. Byrne is a contributing author of a new book entitled "Resolving Insurance Claim Disputes Before Trial" published by the American Bar Association's Tort & Insurance Practice Section.  Mr. Byrne's chapter, entitled "Construction Claims:  A Mediator's Perspective", describes how Mediation is an attractive option to resolve construction claims, which may otherwise "evolve into one of the most complex, expensive, unwieldy, and exasperating types of litigation".  He further notes, "While the mediation of construction claims is a significant undertaking, it provides the most effective route for parties to gather, air, and resolve the wide range of disparate interests presented, circumventing years of expensive and ultimately unsatisfying litigation."  For more information about the publication, visit the American Bar Association
