Complicated disputes can surface during construction projects, threatening to disrupt deadlines and strain budgets. O’Connell, Attmore & Miller’s construction and surety litigation practice counsels clients to resolve conflicts through negotiation and alternative dispute resolution to avoid the need for costly and time-consuming litigation. Our experienced litigators are also prepared to go to trial, and bring extensive experience in government contract, surety performance, and payment bond cases in state and federal courts, as well as in private arbitration proceedings.
Our firm maintains direct contact with our clients, who include owners, contractors, design professionals, insurance companies, and sureties on public and private insurance projects. We bring a myriad of expert contacts within the construction industry on which we draw to craft a strategy for our clients. Matters we regularly address include lack of payment, faulty performance issues, warranty claims, schedule/delay analysis, labor issues, mechanic’s lien issues, design errors and omissions, zoning and permits, and contract negotiation.
Our lawyers handle complex multi-party cases that are factually complicated, and we routinely coordinate efforts with in-house counsel, bond claim representatives, and other third parties. Working with our firm affords our clients resources in related practice areas that often factor into construction litigation, including personal injury, zoning and land use, and employment law. Whatever legal issues arise, O’Connell, Attmore & Miller has a diverse range of services to represent our clients so they can focus on the timely completion of their projects.
