Construction projects routinely lead to contract disputes over multiple issues - such as compliance with specifications and drawings, unforeseen conditions, delay and acceleration of work, etc. We have helped clients manage those disputes for many years. And, when the other side maintains an unreasonable position inconsistent with the record or the contract, we are prepared to try or arbitrate the case to achieve our clients' desired result. We have done so in dozens of cases arising out of projects ranging in size from millions of dollars up to billions all over the U.S., the UK, South America, and Asia.

[+] Engineering and Design Negligence
We have represented engineering and design professionals for decades on claims arising out of projects throughout the U.S. and the world. We have also represented owners when a design professional breaches a contractual requirement or departments from the standard of care. So, we have the skills and experience to address claims of engineering and design negligence from both sides.
[+] Construction Defects
While often part of contract disputes or claims of negligence generally, construction defect claims can arise specifically in projects of any size. We have handled such claims for projects of all sizes ranging from university dormitories in the U.S. to gas processing facilities in Saudi Arabia.
