Construction

The firm’s construction team has represented a wide variety of developers, general contractors, subcontractors, and design professionals on projects ranging from high-rise commercial structures to large-scale subdivisions to single-family residences. Because of the complex, comprehensive, and often long-term nature of construction projects, legal disputes can arise at various points in the process. We provide counseling on matters of general business, licensing, contracting, insurance, and risk management. We also provide client-driven, cost-effective legal representation in both private and public works projects for issues that arise from the planning phase in trial and appellate courts.

In recent years, the team has been at the forefront of mold litigation as it relates to the construction industry, defending personal injury and property damage disputes where mold and mold exposure are central themes. The construction team also is engaged in influencing potential legislative responses to the proliferation of defect suits through the Association of Defense Counsel and other organizations.

Among the services we provide, we handle matters involving contract disputes, including: indemnity and coverage issues; licensing; design professional negligence-malpractice claims; realtor negligence-malpractice claims; construction defect allegations; extra-contractual claims; delay damage claims; construction site personal injury and property damage claims; warranty disputes; and payment disputes.
