It's About Payment and Performance


Most construction litigation falls into two categories — payment or performance. We represent clients in claims where monies are wrongfully withheld. We have also helped clients resolve matters arising from defective materials and poor workmanship. We frequently consult with independent construction experts to determine if the proper standard of care was exercised in the project and establish the proper measure of damages.
