Practice Areas: Construction Law & Litigation

We represent designers, project developers, general contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers from the beginning of the project to the end and after. We assist clients in handling liens, bonds, and extra work claims. We review and draft contracts to help avoid problems at the end of the project. Examples of this kind of work include:

Delay Claims: Time is money in construction. When one party causes another to be delayed, we can assist in presenting the claim to the responsible party. If that does not achieve a resolution, we litigate and arbitrate these disputes.

Construction Defect Claims: When contractors or design professionals make mistakes, it can lead to increased costs for the owner of the project – whether through a change order or through later problems such as mold, water infiltration, or structural problems. We have extensive experience in litigating these matters.

Lien and Bond Claims: Contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers often need help to get their final payments on a project. Filing materialman’s liens and/or claims on payment bonds is one way to get that payment made.

Breach of Contract and Breach of Warranty Claims: All construction disputes arise out of contracts. We mediate, arbitrate, and litigate these cases regularly.
