Construction Litigation

Our construction law group has extensive experience in the resolution of complex disputes in national and international forums, including state and federal courts, the United States Court of Federal Claims, and numerous state and federal boards of contract appeals. We have also arbitrated cases before the American Arbitration Association and the International Chamber of Commerce Court of Arbitration.

We have particular expertise in the management of complex multi-party cases. This experience includes development of cost effective discovery plans and working with clients and experts as a litigation "team." We are experienced in working with clients to manage and control litigation costs. We have also designed and used computer-generated data bases customized to the requirements for the specific dispute. We have the in-house capability to organize and retrieve records, which are essential to discovery and trial of disputes.

Our construction group has a particular expertise in the area of default and convenience terminations on both public and private contracts. Based on our experience representing both owners and contractors, we understand the key contractual, technical, schedule, and cost issues involved in the decision to terminate a contract. We have been successful in the reversal of default terminations by federal and state agencies and the preparation and negotiation of multi-million dollar termination settlements.
