Representing Construction Defect And Delay Claims

Most construction projects begin with the best of intentions. It is not uncommon, however, for legal disputes to arise during, or at the end of, the construction process. When defects happen and unexpected delays occur, these problems can leave your business facing expensive litigation. Our lawyers use their combined experience of more than 100 years to resolve your claim through negotiation, and in many cases, we can accomplish this without the necessity of having to appear in a courtroom.

Claims We Regularly Handle

At Kaplin Stewart Meloff Reiter & Stein, P.C., we regularly assist a wide variety of clients in finding the right solutions to construction matters. Whether you are a general contractor, manufacturer, designer or property owner, we can help you resolve claims regarding construction delays and defects. Some examples of the claims we handle include:

  • Breaches of contract
  • Defective performance
  • Inexcusable delays
  • Warranties – both implied and express

We also work with claims where the delay on the project was caused by fraudulent actions, a party that actively interfered in the project or bad faith.

How We Can Help

Each defect or delay claim is unique, and our attorneys approach them as such. We evaluate the scope of the specific claim, as well as all related construction contracts to determine the extent of liability. We can explain to you what your options are and then negotiate with the other party to settle the matter as quickly as possible. If we cannot find a resolution to your claim via direct mediation, we are prepared to aggressively represent your interests in litigation.
