Why should I hire a construction litigation lawyer?
Since its inception, our firm has acted for clients involved in all aspects of the construction industry including owners, developers, suppliers and professionals such as architects and engineers.
We regularly handle a wide range of construction-related matters, and we have helped our clients resolve a broad range of disputes arising from projects of all size – from large infrastructure projects to smaller-scale residential and commercial developments. Our lawyers have experience resolving matters related to the following:
- Professional negligence cases
- Tendering disputes
- Builders lien issues
- Contractual interpretation issues arising during and post construction
- Litigation arising from progress draw disputes and completion issues
- Delay and extra claims
Where appropriate, we strive to resolve our clients’ construction-related disputes through alternative dispute resolution mechanisms such as negotiation and mediation. If a particular case does not lend itself to such a consensual resolution, we have the expertise and resources to successfully represent our clients in court proceedings or arbitration.
