Construction Litigation



The Firm provides its clients with extensive counseling and litigation experience related to a wide variety of construction disciplines.  We represent contractors, construction managers, developers, design professionals, and suppliers in all types of public and private construction and development.

We identify issues, solve problems and resolve disputes during contract formation and the performance period.  We regularly counsel our clients on litigation avoidance and work closely with them to confront and resolve issues in the field, proving that a prompt response often prevents delay, uncertainty and costly litigation.

We represent clients in state and federal courts, in arbitration proceedings, and in other alternative dispute resolution forums in connection with litigation and claims arising out of the construction process, including contract performance and termination issues, allegations of construction defects, and allegations of defective or negligent design claims.

We routinely handle a full range of construction disputes and litigation with particular experience in breach of contract claims, change orders, collection remedies, construction insurance and bad faith issues, damage analysis, delay and extra work claims, design and construction defect claims, mechanic’s liens, prompt payment and retention issues, scheduling delays and impacts, and warranty issues and remedies.
