New Bearing is always looking for exceptional talent to join our growing team. If you have technical or commercial construction experience and are seeking to transition to a new challenge in consulting, let's talk.

We are 100% remote and offer challenging projects and an excellent work-life balance.

Construction Dispute
Resolution Q&A

Send us an email or give us a call. Once we clear any conflicts and understand your challenge, we'll provide you with a proposal for our engagement.

Our proposal includes a firm timeline and budget to complete the work, so you know exactly how much you'll pay and when you can expect to see results. Once the work is underway, we take your claims and change issues and work to uncover, untangle and uncomplicate the situation.

We often bring a new perspective or angle that allows the dispute to be viewed. We then help you communicate this clearly, whether through a document we help you write, a presentation we prepare for you to deliver, or a report we produce.

Construction dispute consultants can help at any point in the process, from drafting your first change order to resolving your disputes.

No. We always preferred this approach when we were contractors, and now that we're consultants, we do things differently from other construction dispute consultants. We form a preliminary view early in the process and share it immediately. As we do more work and the issues untangle, we continually check in with you so you know our direction of travel throughout the process.

Typically, we start with a data-sharing site, which can be yours or ours. This will contain information like the contract, schedule, and key documents pertinent to the issue you want us to examine. We typically follow our initial reading with a detailed Q&A session with your team to ensure we fully understand the issue you need our help with.
