Handling Claims For Equitable Adjustments

Construction contracts involve complex relationships; owners, contractors and potentially dozens of subcontractors need to provide detailed project information that can be used to establish reasonable construction cost estimates on building projects throughout Northern California. That information is also used to calculate equitable adjustments when costs have changed from initial conditions.

At the San Mateo construction law firm of Last & Faoro, we offer experience identifying and analyzing possible claims for additional compensation and preparing, negotiating, and settling claims for equitable adjustments in the contract amount.

Should Your Contract Be Adjusted?

Our attorneys regularly handle delay claims and acceleration claims. They have the experience to identify, prepare, and review delay claims or requests for equitable adjustment in relation to entitlements and the calculation of the amount of the claim. Our firm uses a variety of calculations to determine the cost of the delay or acceleration, including:

  • The measured mile
  • Eichleay formula
  • Total cost
  • Modified total costs

Because we understand how costly delays on a construction project are, we work hard to ensure your construction law matters conclude in a timely manner. Our lawyers have probably seen situations similar to yours, and have the background to effectively negotiate matters as well as to protect your interests whether the issues proceed to litigation or alternative dispute resolution, including arbitration and mediation.
