Construction Litigation

Experienced Construction Attorneys for Plaintiffs and Defendants In New York City

We take pride in helping our clients obtain successful resolutions that are cost-effective and meet their needs. We understand that litigation is never a desirable outcome, but we understand that strong and swift enforcement will get you paid or protect you from paying too much.

In the increasingly complex world of construction, litigation is becoming more and more common and necessary.
