CONSTRUCTION LITIGATION


Baty, Holm, Numrich & Otto, P.C., has an extensive history of representing owners, design professionals, consultants, general and subcontractors, and material suppliers, in high-exposure construction litigation.  Our attorneys routinely address the difficult issues facing the construction industry today, including contract analysis, risk transfer and avoidance, OSHA compliance, construction defects, catastrophic injury claims, mechanics liens, warranty claims, insurance coverage, insurance defense matters, and appeals.

We understand the complex issues that face our clients in the construction industry, and we work closely with each client to counsel them on the most effective approaches to risk management, dispute resolution, and, when appropriate, litigation.  We are often retained by our clients' insurance carriers or through direct referrals to handle complex disputes in civil litigation or arbitration.  Our representation often begins by quickly retaining the most qualified experts in the field to help investigate the cause of building defects and the potential financial exposure to our client.

We also draft, negotiate and modify original and form contracts, assist in construction management issues and claims avoidance, and work with our clients to avoid costly construction claims.  In addition to contract and litigation matters, our firm also represents construction professionals in connection with their business needs.  We have considerable experience in areas of corporate law, insurance and surety law, personal injury, and employment matters.
