Defect Disputes

When deficiencies are discovered on any construction project, the impact on project participants and owners alike can be significant. Investigating both the cause and reasonable repair of such deficiencies can involve claims of both design and construction defect and can implicate a large number of project participants. On the other hand, owners and contractors tempted to repair the defects can run the risk of prejudicing their rights to prosecute or defend against defect claims.
