Litigation Support Consultation

Construction Defect Consultants Litigation & Consultation Team recognizes that there are two essential elements to effective legal assistance service in the construction field; technical expertise and timely responsiveness to client needs. We also recognize the constantly evolving nature of construction projects, and pride ourselves in providing quick and effective responses to issues as they arise on each project.

We are experienced in representing clients from the initiation of projects and preparation of contract documents through dispute resolution, including negotiation, mediation, arbitration and trial. We have broad experience representing public and private owners, engineering and design firms, contractors, subcontractors, and sureties, and have developed extensive experience in insurance issues particular to the construction industry, as well as payment and performance bond issues.

Contracts

During project formation and negotiation, we have worked with the major professional and industry forms including those of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and Associated General Contractors (AGC). We understand the range of delivery options, including design-bid-build, design/build, fast-track, general contractor and construction manager and the risks inherent in them. We are experienced in the related issues arising out of bid documents, construction lending and mechanic’s liens and related remedies.

Dispute Resolution

When disputes arise, we have investigated construction matters in the state and federal court systems and before state and federal administrative agencies and contract appeals boards. We have also participated in construction dispute resolution before the American Arbitration Association (AAA), the California Contractors State License Board (CSLB) and served as mediators and arbitrators in such disputes. We have significant experience with all of the issues that traditionally arise in construction disputes, including defects, claims for extra work and differing site condition claims. We have expertise in claims for delay or disruption, including actual and constructive acceleration and claims for lost productivity. We also have significant experience with claims arising from allegations of design professional liability, cardinal changes, theft-by-contractor, terminations for default or convenience and post-completion warranty issues.
