We represent contractors, owners, architects, developers and subcontractors in contractual and related matters.

Construction litigation

We also have a thriving construction litigation practice, helping to resolve disputes such as those involving:

  • Construction delay claims
  • Quality of workmanship disputes
  • Quality of materials claims
  • Mechanics liens
  • Construction defect claims
  • Multiphase engineering and construction conflicts
  • Insurance and indemnification
  • Claims analysis
  • Warranty claims
Alternative dispute resolution

Most standard construction contracts require the parties to arbitrate or mediate disputes. We represent clients in mediation and arbitration proceedings throughout the United States. Even when the contract does not require an alternative dispute resolution method, it may be more cost-effective for clients to use these approaches to dispute resolution first.
