Construction Litigation

If there is one universal reality about construction projects it is that they generate litigation disputes, often necessitating skilled litigators to resolve. Since its inception, DBMS has maintained a strong practice in construction-related litigation. The attorneys who focus in this area are skilled trial lawyers and negotiators, who employ their skills to obtain exceptional results for their clients.

DBMS represents owners, construction managers, general contractors, subcontractors and material suppliers in all types of construction-related litigation or non-litigation disputes, including claims of injury, construction defects, contract disputes, breach of warranty and mechanic liens. DBMS attorneys have extensive experience defending parties covered by wrap-up insurance policies and have successfully defended contractors and third-party employers in actions involving the erection of significant commercial structures such as courthouses, hospitals, high rise buildings and parking garages.

Whether it be meeting with and preparing superintendents, foremen or safety representatives to testify or filing dispositive motions under Section 414 of the Restatement (Second) of Torts, DBMS attorneys have a command of the nuances of the laws governing construction-site safety, and our clients have benefitted greatly from that expertise.
