Construction Defect Disputes
We have extensive experience investigating and resolving disputes related to defective work. Recent illustrative cases have involved concrete cracking and spalling defects, MSE (mechanically stabilized earth) wall failure, cantilevered soldier pile wall failure, paint adhesion failures, building envelope and water intrusion failures, refrigeration condensation issues, plumbing system valve leaks, and conveyance pipe fracture.
Effective resolution of defect disputes sometimes involves insurance coverage. When necessary, we work with coverage counsel to maximize insurance benefits and mitigate risk.
Consultation with proper subject matter experts also is an important aspect of effective resolution of defect claims. We work with structural engineers, mechanical engineers, civil engineers, geotechnical engineers, and forensic claims accountants to provide an efficient team approach to client representation on complex issues.
