Construction Litigation

Washington Construction Disputes Lawyers

The Seattle area appears to be under construction at all times. The skyline is full of cranes, residential developments push the edges of the city outward, and roadways are constantly under repair. Such a heady atmosphere generates disputes over construction delays and defects. Construction litigation can cost contractors both money and time. It can also interfere with the ability to complete other jobs.

Handling all types of complex construction litigation

We have represented clients in cases involving:

  • Contractor liens
  • Construction defects such as unsafe wiring, leaking windows, poor design, building code violations, weak foundations, and poor workmanship
  • Site problems such as poor drainage, unstable soils, and subsidence
  • Breach of contract in cases where the builder fails to complete the project as agreed-upon or other substantial failure
  • Breach of warranty
  • Negligence and fraud in which the builder deliberately misrepresented the quality of the completed project or when the supplier negligently provided substandard materials or workmanship

Construction litigation can be complex. There is often more than one plaintiff or defendant, as responsibility may be difficult to trace. There may be time limits on filing claims. There may be multiple insurance carriers. We have the resources and experience to handle the most difficult construction litigation, whether the client is a homeowner, a condominium association, or a subcontractor.
