Construction disputes are common and tend to delay projects. A skilled construction litigator helps resolve your dispute quickly, enabling you to focus on getting your project off the ground and completed on budget.
Commercial construction projects are complex and involve multiple parties from architectural design and financing to the contractors constructing the structure. Whether navigating tax credits, assembling a tract of land or moving the project through the permitting and approval process, many projects require an element of public-private partnership. With so many parties at the table, opportunities for disputes abound.
With experience representing owners, developers, general contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, utilities, lenders, sureties, lienholders, brokers, and insurance companies, our Real Estate & Construction Litigation Practice Group is experienced in negotiating creative solutions to complex real estate and construction disputes. And, when necessary, resolving them in state and federal court.
Our litigators are prepared to assist you with disputes arising from:
- Breach of contract
