Construction Litigation

The construction of a new building or the build-out of existing space should be cause for celebration. Unfortunately, disputes often arise between the owner and general contractor or between the general contractor and subcontractor. Our attorneys have experience drafting effective construction contracts that reduce the risk of conflicts. If a dispute does arise, we work closely with our clients to resolve the dispute and get the project completed as quickly and efficiently as possible–often using mediators to facilitate the process. If litigation or arbitration is necessary, we have experience and skills needed to present an effective case to the judge, jury or arbitrator.

Donna and Diane defended Catalina Pool Builders in a construction arbitration. In the face of a large damages claim, they succinctly and thoughtfully made legal arguments and cross-examined the claimants’ witnesses. As a result of their work, the arbitrator denied the claimant any award. Needless to say, we are very happy with their work and the results achieved.
