Understanding your rights in New York construction litigation

On Behalf of | Jan 20, 2016 | Construction

Construction litigation in New York is often risky and almost always complex. On a large commercial construction project there are typically many parties involved, including developers, landowners, architects, contractors, subcontractors and insurance companies. When a defect is discovered, determining who was at fault and who is legally responsible can involve tangled factual and legal issues.

At the Law Firm of Nadel & Ciarlo, we understand that the stakes are often very high in a construction dispute. We will spend time with our clients assessing the costs and risks of each potential course of action. When we represent parties in a construction dispute, we bring to the table years of experience trying cases in New York state, city and federal courts. We also draw on our long experience in negotiating cost-effective resolutions to problems before they go to trial.

Successfully trying a construction litigation case requires knowledge of the industry, as well as the legal rights and remedies of the parties. We understand the role of mechanics’ and materialmens’ liens in New York construction law. We understand the importance in many cases of securing insurance coverage for a claim. We are well-versed in the laws of negligence, warranty and breach of contract as they relate to construction claims.

Whether our client is a builder, a material supplier, a commercial developer, a contractor, a subcontractor, a co-op or condo board or a homeowner, we are committed to working tirelessly on their behalf.
