CONSTRUCTION LITIGATION

Our Construction Litigation Team handles New York Labor Law personal injury at the highest level. Our lawyers have been serving contractors, owners and developers in the region for more than 20 years.

Each attorney on our Construction Litigation Team holds an OSHA 10 certificate and is experienced in handling all aspects of an emergency accident investigation. We offer superior knowledge of the law, construction and design practice, technical issues, and insurance risk transfer issues. We have the legal knowledge and experience necessary to investigate issues that assist in establishing defenses to vicarious liability during motion practice and at trial.

In addition to representing clients in litigation, the attorneys on our Construction Litigation Team offer guidance with respect to construction pre-planning, project safety, emergency response and risk transfer. We dedicate an emergency response team to every project, and we work closely with our clients’ risk management and project safety teams to proactively address areas of potential exposure. We also provide training and advice on incident reporting techniques and investigations.

Our Construction Litigation attorneys take an aggressive approach to every aspect of a case from discovery through trial. We have relationships with outside consultants including engineers, economists, doctors and vocational rehabilitation experts with whom we have worked in the past to achieve favorable results for our mutual clients. Working closely with our experts enables us to develop and execute common-sense legal strategies crafted to meet the challenges of each individual case. This approach sends a message to all adversaries that our clients are well represented by a firm committed to success and that is ready, willing and able to vigorously litigate if necessary.
