We aggressively prosecute and defend public and private construction lien, bond, and payment claims.

Delay, Impact, and Other Construction Claims

We regularly review and resolve claims relating to various events encountered during projects, including orders, defective work, differing site conditions, and delays.

Construction Defect and Warranty Claims

Our work involves defending and prosecuting defect and warranty claims through communications with insurance companies and pursuing claims for insurance coverage.

Resolution of Construction Disputes

We are experienced in resolving construction disputes through negotiation and mediation, and, when necessary, arbitration and litigation. We practice before state and federal courts in Oregon and Washington, the Oregon Construction Contractors Board, and other state administrative agencies.
