Construction Litigation

Representing a Wide Range of Construction Clients

Miller & Monroe represents a wide range of construction companies – from large national builders to general contractors to small, local subcontractors. Construction contracts often involve a complicated web of agreements between property owners, developers, design professionals, general contractors, and subcontractors.

If disputes cannot be resolved informally, they often proceed to a complicated, multi-party arbitration or litigation process. If the dispute involves complex technical issues, Miller & Monroe utilizes the services of outside experts. Expert witnesses provide specialized technical knowledge that can prove invaluable to client’s case. Miller & Monroe, in close consultation with its clients, selects experts with a combination of individual qualifications and presentation skills specifically geared to meet the client’s specific needs.

Construction Litigation

  • Breach of contract claims, lien claims, change order disputes, collections, implied and express warranty claims, and other disputes.
  • Design and construction defects – Whether a project was improperly designed or improperly constructed, we have the experience necessary to litigate claims between owners, contractors, engineers, and architects.
  • Delay and interference claims – Many times a construction project gets delayed and the financial impact can be serious. Delays in obtaining permits, coordinating between contractors, processing change orders, or similar delays can cost contractors thousands of dollars. We litigate claims by contractors or by owners against contractors relating to construction delays.
  • Insurance disputes over coverage, declaratory judgments, bad faith and breach of contract, and errors and omissions.
