Construction Litigation

Few industries require the careful coordination and seamless execution of various contracts more than the construction industry. Discord at even one point in the planning and execution of any contract can quickly derail a construction project and entail financial setbacks for all parties involved.

Parties to residential and commercial construction disputes in Louisiana rely on our seasoned litigation counsel to successfully resolve disputes in their favor. As one of New Orleans' most established civil litigation firms, we have a nuanced understanding of the region's construction industry and familiarity with the key players within. Because we focus on our clients' ultimate objectives and not a predetermined course of action, we are able to remain flexible in the face of changing facts or circumstances and ensure that we achieve long-term goals in addition to short-term gains.

Our construction industry clientele includes:

  • Property owners
  • Developers
  • General contractors
  • Subcontractors
  • Financing corporations

Claims we have successfully handled include disputes concerning:

  • General contractor and subcontractor agreements
  • Financing arrangements
  • Property acquisition
  • Land use and zoning
  • Construction delays and defects
  • Mechanic's liens

Because construction projects are both costly and time-sensitive, effective legal counsel can afford to be neither tentative nor inefficient; instead, it must carefully balance a client's end goals with the consequences of pursuing time-consuming and potentially costly litigation. With six combined decades of experience handling high-stakes construction claims, we approach a case already mindful of the need for a results-driven but still carefully considered litigation plan.
