Construction Law

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
  • Insurers

While our attorneys are experienced and prepared for litigation, we recognize that litigation may not be the best option in every situation.  We will discuss options with you, early and often, to resolve matters in a way that makes sense for you – whether that be through litigation, arbitration, mediation, or direct negotiation.  Our goal is to take the burden of a dispute off your desk as soon as possible and let you get back to normal.

We have represented clients in a wide-range of matters involving construction defects, architect/engineer liability, delay/disruption claims, structural failures, water intrusion (including EIFS claims), construction site personal injury claims, property damage claims, nuisance and trespass claims arising from construction activities, sitework and land/water disturbance issues, and indemnification and risk transfer.
