Surety and Bond Claims


On behalf of sureties and bond claimants, our construction team assists in resolving performance and payment bond disputes, including scope, notice and limitations issues.

On public projects, we litigate against governmental owners and with other claimants in federal court (Miller Act) and in state courts (statutory bond claims). We also negotiate takeover agreements, completion contracts, workout agreements and secured lending for financing completion and claims resolution. In addition, we regularly handle debtor-in-possession financings and work to secure favorable treatment for our clients in the bankruptcy courts.
