We frequently are called on to resolve disputes that arise on construction projects in state and federal courts across the nation, including lien claims, bond claims, delay/disruption claims, and defective construction claims. More than 50 of our attorneys work extensively in litigation, and they are sensitive to discovery and other costs. Our clients have included contractors as well as their insurance companies, and in all cases we seek to mitigate matters before they reach the courtroom. We have extensive experience in alternative dispute resolution but also are prepared to go to trial in those matters where a timely agreement cannot be reached.
