litigation experience in construction law

Harman Claytor Corrigan Wellman’s Construction Practice Group has offices in both Virginia and the Washington, DC area with extensive experience representing and defending clients in all phases of construction litigation and alternative dispute resolution. In fact, we’ve handled a diverse range of construction matters both at the trial and appellate level, and efficiently resolve disputes with mediation, arbitration and other ADR techniques, when necessary. Depending on your breadth of legal needs, we can also provide general advice and services in non-litigation matters to construction industry clients.

Our Construction Practice Group attorneys offer clients an array of industry representation in all aspects of construction projects, including:

  • Owners
  • Developers
  • Architects and Engineers
  • Construction Managers
  • General Contractors
  • Subcontractors
  • Product Manufacturers

When initiating our relationship, we also assume a leadership role from the start to determine whether or not you can avoid civil litigation through early resolution. If an early resolution is not feasible, we will work with you and any necessary experts to assess your litigation risks and customize an optimal strategy that suits your needs. As our client, our attorneys can represent you with the following civil litigation and construction law service areas:

  • Construction Defects
  • Product Liability
  • Architect/Engineer Liability
