Best & Flanagan’s seasoned construction litigation team adopts a novel approach to the resolution of construction claims: we listen to our clients, take a hard look at the facts and then act both boldly and nimbly to drive a resolution. Our team represents a wide range of parties in the construction industry: owners, developers, general contractors, subcontractors and suppliers for both public and private projects, as well as residential and commercial projects.
We proactively manage our clients’ risk through our contract negotiations, preserve and prosecute their rights to payment, address performance issues and resolve construction defect claims through direct negotiations, mediation, arbitration and litigation. While our clients and their work are varied, our goal is the same: deliver the best service.
We never follow a template when representing our construction clients. Instead, we approach each client and issue with the mindset of what is the best resolution and how can we best achieve that resolution. Our team draws from decades of experience that allows us to efficiently evaluate a situation, have a candid discussion with our clients about the strengths and weaknesses of their position and develop an effective strategy to drive the matter to resolution. We are strong advocates and well adept at achieving this resolution through direct negotiations; however, our team is comprised of litigators and we remained poised to try every case to the jury.
We also empower our clients with knowledge. Our construction litigation team routinely presents to clients on a variety of topics including contract issues, best practices, documentation and claims. We also team up with our business and employment law colleagues to address our construction clients’ related needs.
