The attorneys at Lipe Lyons Murphy Nahrstadt & Pontikis are experienced in both construction defect and construction accident litigation. We regularly defend general contractors, subcontractors and owners in cases involving site safety and supervision, defective work, deviations from plan and coordination and control of job sites. 

The firm has experience both in maneuvering multi-million dollar construction cases towards successful resolution through dispositive motions and in trying construction cases. The firm has successfully represented crane companies in cases involving severe injuries and worked on high-profile cases involving the Millennium Park Parking Garage and Midway Airport Parking Garage construction. 

The attorneys at the firm have the knowledge and experience to navigate complex construction terminology, blueprints, AIA documents, field reports and construction schedules. 

The firm’s construction practice group is headed by Jeffrey H. Lipe. Mr. Lipe has experience in construction breach of contract and negligence actions, professional liability claims involving delay damages and escalation costs as well as general liability claims alleging unsafe work practices.
