Commercial & Residential Defects
There are many moving parts and relationships at play in commercial and large residential projects. These projects are likely to have design professionals; developers and owners; contractors and suppliers. We understand these relationships and how the oversight of any person in the chain can lead everyone into litigation.Residential construction can be especially high risk as there are a myriad of protections in place for homeowners. However, all residential defects are governed by the Residential Construction Liability Act which affords builders some protection. Listen to one of our attorneys discuss defect litigation below.
Our firm is experienced in litigating and resolving defect disputes. Our focus is always a cost effective and positive result for the client. We are comfortable working with experts to figure out the exact cause of patent and latent defects and developing a trial or arbitration strategy to bring about a desired result.
Typically, the complex contractual relationships of multiple parties make it necessary that there be an analysis of insurance coverage, additional insured requirements and endorsements as well as construction contract language. We are familiar with these contracts, CGL policies and insurance companies’ actions when litigation becomes necessary.
