Construction Disputes

OVERVIEW

While the foundation for achieving this goal lies in counseling the client in the contract negotiation or bidding process, disputes on the jobsite or after project closeout can frequently arise, despite the most careful planning. Such disputes may involve defective design or construction, failure to pay, lien claims (both public and private), delay claims, and payment and performance bond claims.

Our construction team has the experience, knowledge and resources to litigate or arbitrate even the most complex construction disputes. In many cases, our attorneys are able to counsel and assist clients in resolving disputes through direct negotiation or mediation, thereby avoiding the significant costs and delays associated with litigation or arbitration. In the event a dispute cannot be resolved in this manner, our construction team has a strong track record of successfully litigating construction disputes in state and federal courts, and in arbitrating such disputes, on behalf of owner-developers, construction managers, general contractors, trade contractors, suppliers, design professionals and sureties.
