Construction Litigation

Construction Dispute Attorneys

Disputes are common in the construction industry. This is due in part to the complexity of the industry itself. Any single construction project may be a collaborative effort among many parties: general contractors, subcontractors, product suppliers, engineers and architects, property owners and more. The sheer number of parties involved means an increased opportunity for misunderstandings and disagreements. When they arise, it is important to have a skilled lawyer on your side who will advocate for you and protect your interests.

At Fischer, Bessette, Muldowney & McArdle, LLP, our construction litigation attorneys are available to represent owners, building professionals and all others involved in the construction trade who have either been targeted with lawsuits or who need to take action against another party.

Types of Construction Disputes

Many of the cases we handle involve allegations of construction defects such as defective roofs, improper window installation, water leaks, and design defects. Cases may also involve allegations of defective materials or inadequate materials, failure to complete the job and more. Liens may be involved. These cases may ultimately be contract disputes with accusations of breach of contract, and often one of the biggest challenges, considering the number of parties involved in construction projects, is determining exactly who was at fault. Our lawyers understand the construction trade and can effectively navigate all of the unique and complex issues that arise in these cases.

What About the Construction Project?

Construction disputes may arise while a project is still ongoing. In these cases, we understand how critical it is that the dispute does not derail the project and that steps be taken to get everything back on track as quickly as possible. When appropriate, we use negotiation techniques to resolve matters efficiently and cost-effectively. However, we are also trial attorneys with the strength to go to court to meet our clients' needs.
