Construction Defect

Our Construction Defect team includes 16 highly-experienced litigators with deep knowledge of technical construction design standards, building techniques and legal remedies in construction defect litigation. Calling upon their fingertip familiarity with New York and New Jersey law and all aspects of construction, the attorneys on our Construction Defect team have handled more than 100 major construction defect cases. The team includes seven partners with a combined 125 years of construction defect experience, and the team works closely with trusted experts and investigators to provide powerhouse representation in state and federal court.

Our attorneys also have a deep understanding of the insurance policies that have potential implications in construction defect litigation. Without this necessary understanding, potential avenues for risk transfer and case solution can go overlooked. We have obtained risk transfer in many cases as a result of our attorneys’ in-depth knowledge of construction and insurance law, resulting in tens of millions of dollars in reimbursement of defense costs and additional coverage to help resolve complex construction defect claims.

Prompt, Strategic and Effective Representation for Construction Defect Claims

Construction defect cases do not get better with time, and our substantial expertise and professional relationships are significant factors in our ability to secure early resolution of construction defect claims. We have handled large construction defect cases for some of the most-prestigious construction projects in New York and New Jersey, including the Hearst Tower, Yankee Stadium, Madison Square Garden, Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, the renowned Interactive Corporation Tower, and the Durst Organization Tower.
