Led by Managing Attorney Warren F. Sperling and Member Nicholas A. Cummins, the Construction Defect Litigation Practice Group represents and advises construction company owners, general and subcontractors, developers, and insurers in an array of construction claims. Several of our attorneys who work in this practice area are OSHA 10 certified. Our expertise in defending against claims of design, material and construction deficiencies, as well as operation and maintenance claims has proven invaluable to our clients in this high-stakes area of litigation. Our team has a focus on risk mitigation and transfer through the aggressive pursuit of claims for contractual indemnification and additional insured coverage through downstream contractors.
Our team stresses proactive management for our clients to quickly and accurately identify and control litigation costs and avoid further disruption to business. We advise our clients on the importance of prompt issue identification and employ creative and cutting edge loss prevention techniques to help anticipate, avoid, and contain claims prior to litigation. We counsel construction professionals confronted with complex contracting, regulatory and financing issues and provide comprehensive and strategic risk management and claim handling advice.
In addition to our comprehensive counseling and advising services, we also aggressively defend major property loss, serious personal injury, defective design, loss of business, delay and disruption claims, mechanics liens and lien foreclosures and more on behalf of our clients. We help our clients navigate intricate issues of coverage, assess and interpret exclusion concerns, and identify key issues in project and contract documents to provide an aggressive defense. With decades of combined experience, our team’s skill and precision in negotiations, arbitrations and mediations produces excellent results for our clients in these difficult cases.
Our clients know that the right expertise is critical in avoiding construction defect claims, and that is exactly why they chose the Construction Defect Practice Group at Bennett, Bricklin for their legal defense needs.
