Construction Litigation

Litigation

It’s a fact: In today’s construction industry, there are a myriad of things that can go wrong, opening the door to litigation.

Walter Haverfield understands the unique challenges and risks that characterize new construction and renovations. Our experienced real estate attorneys work diligently to help clients manage risk throughout the construction process. However, disputes still occur.

Our Construction Litigation Difference

With decades of experience in the construction industry, Walter Haverfield attorneys are well-positioned to provide counsel designed to help resolve claims before, during, and after construction. We represent developers and contractors, as well as lenders, on a wide array of issues, providing strategic counsel to help them navigate every step of the complex litigation process—from pre-filing to discovery and through dispute resolution.

When litigation is the only answer, our clients count on Walter Haverfield’s team of litigators to provide aggressive representation. But as realists, clients can equally count on us to provide honest, straightforward advice relative to alternatives, such as mediation, arbitration, or early settlement.
