Who We Work With

Our attorneys work with construction companies, developers, insurance companies, contractors, engineers, architects, and others on complex and technical construction law matters.

Handling All Types Of Construction Claims

We handle claims involving:

  • Breach of contract
  • Termination of contracts
  • Construction defects
  • Property damage
  • Project delays
  • Failure to meet timing requirements
  • Changes to scope and size of project
  • Overcharging
  • Cost and billing issues
  • Disputes with contractors and subcontractors
  • Injury and wrongful death claims
  • Professional liability issues

These issues may also coincide with payment issues and mechanic’s liens if the owner isn’t paying. Many of these issues also involve disputes surrounding variations. Once a project starts, many property owners think that can substantially change the requirements mid-stream, and they get upset if this approach delays the timing or raises the overall costs of the project.

Our lawyers are well-versed in all of these issues. We will protect your rights and make sure you get the best outcome possible.
