The Firm is experienced in bond programming, financing and budgeting; site selection and acquisition; selection, negotiation and document­ation of design professional services; and negotiation and documentation of construction agreements. We have handled a wide variety of construction claims and litigation, including payment and performance bond claims, lien claims and claims for warranty, liquidated damages, defective design, defective workmanship and delay. We also handle bid protests, payment and collection disputes, and insurance and bond disputes. Finally, we act as arbitrator and mediator to resolve construction disputes.

The Firm represents a number of private and public development owners, general contractors, and subcon­tractors. In this representation, emphasis is placed on comprehensive and well-drafted documents to attempt to avoid or minimize construction-related disputes.  In the event of a dispute, we are proactive in seeking a cost-effective approach to protecting your rights through litigation, arbitration, or mediation.  We also represent clients in the regulatory permit­ting process and in resolving disputes with local building officials, utilities, local and state environmental regulatory agencies, and the Arizona Corporation Commission.
