Construction defect claims are a major area of our construction litigation practice. We are experienced in representing all parties to construction defect litigation, including owners, developers, general contractors, subcontractors, architects and engineers, materials suppliers, product manufacturers, as well as the insurers of these parties and professionals.
We’ve represented construction defect claims that involve airport facilities, apartment buildings, condominium buildings, floating homes, homeowner associations and townhomes, retail and distribution centers, senior living centers and single family residences.
We strive to win but always keep in mind the economic objectives of the client. When possible we participate in alternative dispute resolution, including mediation and arbitration.
