Professional liability claims are essentially two cases in one: the liability claim and the causal litigation or transaction. A team with significant dispute and transactional experience is essential to understanding the underlying case. When called upon, we work closely with our clients to define the near-term and overarching objectives of the representation and to implement a comprehensive plan to address the substantive issues of the primary claim, and to understand the underlying intricacies of the causal matter.
We work with clients in an efficient and cost-effective way to minimize risk and maximize success by developing creative contract delivery systems; resolving problems before, during and after the project with unique solutions; and, if needed, expeditiously and cost effectively representing clients in all types of disputes forums including mediation, arbitration, and the courts.
Our construction team takes an interdisciplinary approach and is composed of attorneys across several of our nationally-recognized practice areas including government contracts, labor and employment, real estate, energy, insurance recovery, project tax and finance, bankruptcy and creditor’s rights, environmental, criminal defense, corporate investigations, and regulatory compliance.
