We build our practice on preventative education, timely response and practical resolution.
The Weissman team of construction attorneys has extensive experience in the representation of virtually all participants in disputes involving owners, developers, general contractors, trade associations, engineers, architects, and subcontractors.
The Weissman Approach
Because disputes can be costly in money, time and relationships, we take a pragmatic approach to construction disputes. First, we offer preventative counseling aimed at avoiding them. Second, if they arise, we try to resolve them informally, quickly and inexpensively. Third, for disputes that cannot be informally resolved, we resolve them through alternative dispute resolutions proceedings, such as mediation and arbitration, which typically involve less time and expense. Finally, if court is necessary, we vigorously—but cost-effectively—pursue our clients’ position.
The Weissman Difference
Unlike many construction lawyers, most of our construction lawyers also have broad experience in related real estate matters, such as real estate documents, lending issues, zoning, condemnation, environmental law compliance, title issues, title insurance, easements, covenants, encroachments and ad valorem taxation.
Our construction practice area focuses mainly on the following:
- Construction defects
- Negligent construction
- Warranty claims
- Design defects
- Mechanic’s liens
- Contract defaults and terminations
- Change orders
- Differing site conditions
- Cost overruns
