I am just trying to understand the overall market place and status of the industry. I’m curious how many contracts end up in dispute annually in our industry?

This answer may not be particularly satisfying, but pegging down that exact number is tough to do. Relatively few disputes make it all the way to litigation, and even compiling the amount of lawsuits filed nationwide on construction projects is a huge undertaking. However, for more on construction disputes worldwide, and some great statistics relevant to the US market, the 2017 Arcadis Report on Global Construction Disputes is full of insightful information.
