Areas of Law Description
- Construction Litigation
Litigation is an unfortunate growing part of performing construction in New York. Whether it is contract disputes, change order disputes, scope of work disputes, delay claims or adjacent property damage our experienced attorneys have handled, litigated, arbitrated and mediated thousands of construction claims.
- Insurance Coverage
Insurance companies don't always pay claims and sometimes they don't pay claims that they should have. Insurance claims are common in the construction industry and may involve work site injuries or property damage claims. Our attorneys have successfully resolved many insurance coverage disputes.
Many building and construction contracts that are written today include an "arbitration clause." This clause is used to anticipate any disputes that may arise and outlines that both sides must submit their dispute for arbitration before an organization such as the American Arbitration Association (AAA).
