Many clients call upon us at the outset of a project to assist in drafting, reviewing, and negotiating design, construction, and consulting contracts and to assist in taking affirmative steps at the front-end of a project, which are designed to minimize the likelihood that claims and disputes will arise later.
We also are often called upon during the course of a project to assist as issues arise so that claims can be avoided if possible. When claims, disputes, litigation, mediation, or arbitration proceedings do arise, we routinely handle those as well.
Our litigation team has extensive experience in presenting, defending, negotiating, arbitrating, mediating, and trying complex construction claims and disputes. Our construction litigation team works diligently to provide effective assistance with identifying, addressing, and efficiently resolving both one-time and reoccurring problems and issues faced by any one of a myriad of participants involved in the construction process. Our collective knowledge and experience is unmatched in the industry and attracts clients from the entire spectrum of the construction industry and process. A thorough grasp of the construction industry coupled with an in-depth understanding of construction law concepts is necessary to assist construction project participants in recognizing, avoiding, and resolving disputes. We handle design and construction defect cases alleging defects due to defective work, defective materials, negligent design, and other matters. We represent developers, contractors and subcontractors, and design professionals in a host of contract-related litigation.
