Construction Litigation

Butler Snow’s construction litigators have extensive experience in private and public construction projects that cover a broad array of issues related to construction, design, project management and financing, including breach of contract claims involving economic losses and delay damages, and construction disasters involving personal injury or death. Our attorneys represent a diverse range of individuals and businesses in the construction industry, including developers, contractors, subcontractors, lenders, material suppliers, architects, engineers and insurers.

The firm handles complex litigation nationwide, and we also represent clients at arbitration hearings and in mediation to resolve disputes efficiently, with many of the firms lawyers certified as arbitrators and mediators.

We regularly litigate issues including defective design and workmanship, operation and maintenance, delay and disruption allegations, contract termination, cost overruns, differing site conditions, project scope changes, contractor and subcontractor disputes, performance bonds, personal injury claims and professional liability.

We work with diverse construction professionals, including engineers and architects on technical matters in each case.  Our team includes senior litigators, some of whom are engineers with substantial experience in complex construction litigation, including claims arising from the design and construction of bridges, heavy and highway work, site work and commercial buildings.
