Our firm has been involved in many high-profile, high-exposure construction cases in several state and federal courts. We also routinely handle construction matters before arbitration tribunals. We have a robust appellate practice, and have successfully handled construction disputes through the appellate process, including appeals before the New York State Appellate Division and the Supreme Court of New Jersey.
Construction disputes rarely progress in a predictable manner, and our clients are guided by various goals, preferences, and concerns driven by business realities. We strive to represent our clients through personalized legal service, and we employ a collaborative approach to develop and maintain strong client relationships. Our clients have unrestricted access to our entire construction litigation practice group, ensuring they remain in the loop at all times. Our deep engagement with our clients as collaborative partners allows us to tailor our representation to steer the course of a dispute towards a favorable resolution.
We are committed to providing agile representation centered around efficient legal service and rigorous cost-containment protocols. Our philosophy is to be surgical in our advocacy — to cut through all the chaff and identify the salient issues. We work with a handful of trusted experts who share this philosophy and are able to evaluate the specific critical issues that must be addressed, and help us formulate an effective plan of action.
Practical, results-driven advice is fundamental to our legal practice and we advocate for solutions that maximize our clients’ best interests. If we believe there is a viable dispositive motion that we can present, or a strategic path that we can take to resolving a matter, we will identify that strategy early in the litigation and execute upon it. For those matters that should be settled, we work to identify the critical issues that need to be developed early on, so as to leverage our information to resolve the matter on the most successful terms possible.
