Construction Defect

We represent general contractors, subcontractors, material and equipment suppliers in complex, multi-party construction defect matters. Frequently, these claims are handled by the indemnity or insurance carrier. We were at the forefront of recent Arizona construction defect law by not only educating the construction industry, but also actively working on the legislation. Additionally, we represent design professionals, structural professionals, and artisan trades including architects and engineers in complex litigation matters. Our experience spans defense of an architect in a $50 million breach of contract matter to an international engineering firm in a $20 million defective design claim. Our construction litigation includes defective workmanship, construction defects, professional negligence, as well as product and equipment defects. We have an effective motion practice as well as extensive experience settling matters through arbitration, mediation, and negotiated settlements.
