The field of construction litigation is driven not only by lengthy written sub-contractor agreements but also by a lawyer’s knowledge of the construction process from the general contractor level to each trade. That is true whether the dispute involves claims of faulty construction, design defects, arguments over the change order process, more general disputes between or among contractors, on-site injuries and fatalities during the construction process, or claims of comparative responsibility among several parties.
Martin, Disiere, Jefferson & Wisdom’s Trial and Specialty Litigation Division attorneys have successfully represented homebuilders, sub-contractors, and property managers in disputes originating at the lien stage to full-blown litigation over faulty construction, design defects, collection matters, and personal injury cases. Our lawyers have likewise arbitrated in the construction litigation arena, gaining familiarity with the American Arbitration Association’s Construction Industry Arbitration Rules and Mediation Procedures, which are commonly invoked in sub-contractor agreements. Our attorneys blend an effective mix of legal skills with knowledge over the construction process to effectively conduct discovery while efficiently preparing each case for trial. In addition to litigation, our attorneys have drawn on their litigation experience to represent a variety of clients in reviewing and negotiating sub-contractor agreements and outfitting clients with effective independent contractor agreements.
