Construction Claims

Our attorneys have extensive experience in all types of construction claims. We represent all sides of the construction industry, including contractors, design professionals, owners and suppliers. We have extensive, personal hands-on experience working for contractors, owners and design professionals. This hands-on experience adds critical real-world experience to our years of litigation in the construction industry.

We handle all types of construction cost overrun claims, such as impact and delay claims, changed conditions or differing site conditions claims, and Spearin warranty/defective specification claims. We work with the best experts in the country to form a team approach to resolving our clients’ disputes.

We litigate major construction disputes in the U.S. Claims Court, Federal Contract Boards of Appeal, numerous state administrative hearings, U.S. district courts, and many state superior courts. Our practice is nationwide; we represent our clients from Hawaii to Alaska and across to New York.

Although most of our litigation involves federal and state public procurement projects, we also represent numerous contractors, developers and owners on private construction projects. These include both civil site development contracts and vertical commercial construction projects. We have broad and deep experience in marine construction, shipyard construction, utility projects, bridge, highway and tunnel work, and heavy civil projects, such as wastewater treatment plants and pump stations. We also have have substantial hands-on experience in all types of marine construction, including pile driving, dock and wharf construction, dredging and outfall projects.

Our construction attorneys’ experience lends itself to early resolution of claims through negotiation and alternate dispute resolution techniques, including mediation. We are able to rapidly understand the risk and value of construction claims thus posturing a case for early settlement and thereby maximize the return on the client’s investment in the litigation.
