A substantial portion of Garfield & Hecht’s commercial litigation practice involves complex construction litigation, including construction defect claims, contractor fee disputes, construction delay claims and scope of work disputes. Unlike many law firms which exclusively represent either property owners or construction professionals in construction defect cases, Garfield & Hecht has substantial experience both prosecuting construction defect claims on behalf of property owners and defending construction professionals against construction defect claims.
Our experience both prosecuting and defending construction defect claims provides us a uniquely balanced perspective in assessing the merits and viability of construction defect claims and defenses. As part of their construction defect expertise, our construction defect litigators are also experienced in navigating the complex insurance coverage issues inherent in virtually every construction defect case to maximize the property owner’s actual recovery or to minimize the personal exposure of construction professionals maintaining commercial general liability policies.
