While the construction group’s attorneys are skilled at resolving construction-related disputes before they escalate to litigation, our lawyers are also experienced trial and alternative dispute resolution lawyers. This combination, coupled with our practical experience, allows us to quickly analyze the strengths and weaknesses of a case in order to foster the early resolution of disputes. This also enables us to litigate disputes when settlements cannot be achieved. Our goal is to help clients resolve conflicts while protecting their financial interests and business objectives, whether in court or through alternative dispute resolution options, including mediation and arbitration. Once the client has made the decision to arbitrate or litigate though, we bring the same zeal whether the claim is for six figures or nine figures.
We routinely represent clients in the types of disputes that are common to the industry, such as delay, disruption and other scheduling disputes, terminations, scope and extra work claims, design and construction defect claims, and mechanics lien and fee disputes. We are also experienced in condominium and commercial lease disputes whose resolution often requires a background in construction, insurance coverage, condominium, landlord tenant and forcible detainer laws. Throughout our careers, we have successfully resolved disputes involving a wide array of building types and project systems, ranging from super tall structures to tunnels, museums and theaters to government buildings, traditional utilities to alternative energy plants, industrial plants to manufacturing facilities, multi-tenant residences to school and university buildings, and from award-winning designs to modular construction. Our knowledge of various building and design systems can be the key to successful client results.
Our attorneys have deep experience working with a broad array of technical consultants. We frequently assist clients in the selection of expert witnesses. And whether prepping our own experts for trial or confronting opposing experts during examinations, we speak the expert’s language.
Our attorneys are also experienced with disputes related to the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) and Fair Housing Amendments Act (“FHAA”) requirements, as well as state and local accessibility laws
