Construction and Surety Claim Legal Issues:
We have worked with heavy construction and transportation contractors involved in sewer and water main construction, treatment plants, road building and repair, public bidding disputes, solid waste transport, and have litigated many claims for and against contractors, big and small, that such projects can produce.
Surety bond claims often go hand-in-hand with such litigation and negotiations. Our experience in these interrelated fields is extensive and has involved many millions of dollars in countless projects over decades from the 1970s to the recent past. Such matters have involved personal injuries on a construction jobsite where we defended a general contractor who was sued when a 350 pound worker fell through a skylight while working on a roof under renovation. Or a contractor’s claim for millions of dollars in “extras” on a project at Kean University, where we successfully defended a nationally known design engineer wrongfully blamed for the construction contractor’s losses resulting from its own failure to read and understand the plans and specifications properly. Our experience over decades in the field of construction and surety law can enable us to serve your interests effectively and successfully, whatever the context of your contract dispute, but we are very much “at home” in construction contract matters.
