Construction Litigation

We help clients resolve potential claims and disputes early, keeping them out of court. When litigation is required, our attorneys are experienced at presenting and defending claims involving delay, extra work, breach of contract, wrongful termination, and defective construction or design. From time to time, our members are also called upon by other lawyers to mediate or arbitrate construction-related disputes.

We also have significant experience in labor and regulatory disputes, representing contractors in prevailing wage investigations and hearings, in OSHA disputes, in responsibility hearings before public boards and agencies, and in unfair labor practice cases before the National Labor Relations Board. In addition, we have represented contractors in numerous arbitrations, including grievance arbitrations under collective bargaining agreements.

Adams Leclair is recognized in Best Law Firms for construction law and construction litigation in U.S. News and World Report, and in the same fields by Super Lawyers.
