In this ever-expanding area of law, the Architectural, Engineering and Construction Defect Litigation Practice Group of Ward Law has gained unparalleled experience in each facet of construction litigation, representing owners, developers, builders, contractors, construction managers, architects and engineers. The types of claims typically at issue in construction defect cases include negligence, breach of contract, contribution, common law and contractual indemnity, and breach of warranty. This group initially develops a comprehensive understanding of the project and contract documents, identifies the key issues, and then proceeds to develop those issues into sound defense strategies.
In representing our clients, we aggressively explore all available defenses, including the economic loss doctrine and lack of privity.
