Construction Litigation

Anderson, McPharlin & Conners LLP specializes in handling all aspects of construction disputes and litigation. We work with our clients to negotiate and draft customized documents based on each client’s specifications and unique requirements.  Our attorneys have years of experience negotiating and drafting construction contracts of all types, including design-build contracts; traditional lump-sum and guaranteed maximum price contracts; performance­ based contracts; construction management contracts, including at-risk contracts; and design contracts.  Our attorneys are extremely familiar with the contract forms published by the American Institute of Architects, ConsensusDOCS, Associated General Contractors, Design-Build Institute of America, Engineers Joint Contracts Documents Committee, and the Construction Management Association of America.

When construction projects hit the inevitable bumps, our construction attorneys do not wait for matters to reach the courtroom. Rather, we are proactive. We work with our clients to manage risk and when appropriate, take charge at the earliest stages of negotiations, Dispute Resolution Board hearings, or workout meetings.  We focus on fashioning cost-effective, real world solutions to the problems facing our clients.

When necessary, Anderson, McPharlin & Conners LLP is uniquely prepared to aggressively take matters to trial, arbitration, and beyond. Members of our team have significant courtroom experience handling a variety of construction disputes, including claims for extra work, delay, acceleration, payment breach, design deficiency, breach of warranty, and the like. Recently, we have won several significant verdicts and arbitration awards for our clients. To achieve these results, we work closely with industry leaders in such fields as construction scheduling and accounting in order to provide our clients with sound and comprehensive representation. Our clients include general contractors and subcontractors; public and private owners; developers of commercial and residential properties; architects, engineers and other design professionals; equipment and material suppliers; and sureties.
