The Construction Litigation group of Wilentz, Goldman & Spitzer, P.A. unites seasoned litigators and land use, environmental and real estate lawyers who are familiar with the full range of complexities that often underpin construction litigation. Claims often arise from damage caused by construction means and methods, faulty workmanship and design defects.  Our team has a long record of success generating best outcomes in nearly every type of construction case.

Construction projects typically involve owners, architects, engineers, general contractors, trade contractors and material suppliers working together to complete a project.  Miscommunications and disagreements are not unusual and when issues arise, securing timely, practical and effective counsel is essential to negotiating a creative, practical resolution to avoid litigation whenever and wherever possible.  If, however, litigation becomes unavoidable, having experienced construction litigation counsel from the outset is essential to appropriately allocate responsibility for the numerous issues that often arise and to reach the best results possible. 

We serve as legal advisers to real estate developers, owners, architects, engineers, and contractors and suppliers to avoid conflicts, where possible, and to position our clients appropriately should litigation be required.  We have extensive experience addressing issues that may arise in nearly every type of construction project, including:

  • Planned Residential Developments
  • Age-Restricted Communities
  • Condominiums
  • Educational Facilities
  • Medical Facilities
  • Office Buildings
  • Mixed Use Buildings
  • Churches
  • Environmental Remediation Projects
  • Parking Structures
  • Bridges and Roads
  • Wastewater Treatment Plants

We are well versed in condominium and homeowner association transition litigation, geotechnical issues, site preparation, building classification, building codes, construction defect claims, architectural and engineering malpractice, mechanical systems, operating budget funding including replacement and deferred maintenance reserve funding and benefits-derived challenges, construction delay claims, critical path method schedule analysis, environmental and regulatory concerns.
