Construction Litigation

Among the Firm’s most active practices is its Construction Litigation Division, with experience at litigating construction defects, design defects, product liability claims, tort claims, and related insurance coverage matters. Our Firm provides legal representation and counsel in construction defect claims, ranging from defective work by subcontractors, general contractors, architects, engineers, developers, other design professionals, special inspectors, government inspectors, construction managers, and claims involving allegedly defective or unsafe materials / products incorporated into structures. The Construction Litigation Division also handles a wide-array of related construction issues including Chapter 558 claims, delay and impact claims, significant mold claims, asbestos, Chinese drywall, other toxic substances, and subsequent remediation of such conditions affecting indoor air quality. Our attorneys are also experienced in handling design defect claims, and have most recently handled such claims involving baseball stadiums and public schools where the design defect is alleged to have resulted in significant injuries. Similarly, our attorneys handle claims relating to public and private real estate owners, design and engineering professionals, contract drafting and negotiations, public and private construction contract bidding, bid procurement and challenges, and construction liens. The Firm’s experience in construction-related matters spans from the defense of claims involving single family residences to multi-story complexes and commercial projects. In many instances our firm is retained as coverage counsel for insurance companies to provide comprehensive coverage opinions on complex construction claims involving owner or contractor controlled (WRAP-UP) insurance policies, commercial general liability policies and builder’s risk policies. In addition to coverage matters, the firm routinely defends construction defects cases involving personal injury claims (sick building claims) arising from alleged mold contamination. Our attorneys have represented home builders, owners, and general and subcontractors. Our Firm also handles multi-state construction litigation and more recently has experienced a surge in “Chinese drywall” claims, including the handling of a class action involving Chinese drywall.
