Many construction projects require heavy machinery and if the construction company does not commonly use this equipment, the company will lease the machinery.

Heavy machinery disputes commonly arise in connection with the purchase, sale, leasing, financing, use, or operation of construction heavy machinery. In most cases, a dispute will arise regarding which entity owns the heavy machinery.
