Lipe Lyons’ attorneys have decades of experience investigating and defending against a wide variety of construction claims. We have been retained to represent clients involved at every level of the construction process in all manner of disputes, and have achieved favorable results for our clients both in and out of the courtroom. 

The process of designing and constructing a building involves a complex interplay among the owner, developer, construction manager, general contractor, subcontractors, design professionals, and materials suppliers. The attorneys at Lipe Lyons have a breadth of experience resolving construction claims on behalf of clients at every level of the construction project. We have represented clients in disputes arising out of the design and construction of commercial structures, public works projects, and multi-million dollar condominium buildings and residential homes.

Our clients have faced claims involving:
  • Personal injury and property damage
  • Design, material, and construction defects
  • Project scope and allowable cost disputes
  • Warranty claims
  • Structural damage
  • Delay and disruption damages and escalation costs
  • Maintenance and repair obligations
  • Contractor insurance disputes

Our Firm’s attorneys understand the importance of risk mitigation and transfer through claims for contractual indemnification and additional insured coverage owed by parallel and downstream contractors. We aggressively pursue contractual and additional insured tenders and, when necessary, prosecute breach of contract and declaratory judgment actions against indemnitors and their insurers.

Whether a claim involves defects, professional performance issues, contractual interpretation, or insurance cost recovery, our attorneys know how to resolve the dispute in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
