Construction Defense

We have defended and taken to trial all types of construction claims brought against developers, contractors, subcontractors, construction managers, suppliers, and design professionals. We provide representation to clients in heavy construction as well as clients engaged in general building construction – including industrial, commercial and residential structures. We have substantial experience defending claims arising from allegations of defective and negligent design, defective products supplied to construction projects and defective design/construction defects that cause catastrophic failure. We are adept in advising clients on settlement value and exposure. We can employ risk analysis to assess litigation outcomes and determine an appropriate case strategy that mitigates risk and costs and maximize clients’ chance of prevailing. From mediation and arbitration to trial and appeals work, we have defended contractors and their employees in matters including:

  • All types of residential structures, from single family dwellings to townhouses; and high-rise condominium buildings to apartment house complexes
  • Office buildings
  • Shopping centers
  • Commercial and industrial structures
  • Schools
  • Athletic facilities
