Construction disputes are almost inevitable in large California construction projects, where there are many "moving parts," numerous parties and the always unpredictable weather.
At Last & Faoro, our construction law attorneys provide effective and efficient legal representation to owners, contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers involved in construction disputes.
We encourage you to give us a call today to discuss your particular situation. Based in San Mateo, we serve clients throughout California.
Last & Faoro handles all aspects of construction disputes from negotiation, arbitration, and mediation to litigation and appeal. Our firm has many years of experience handling a wide range of construction-related disputes, including:
- Payment and collections issues
- Prosecution of claims
- Prosecuting claims for the payment of prompt payment penalties
- Insurance coverage issues, including wrongful denial of coverage
- Surety matters
- Construction claims
- Bond claims
- Discrepancies and interpretations of poorly drafted construction documents (plans — specifications — scope of work)
- Change order, delay, and disruption claims
- Contract and specification scope disputes
- Construction cost accountings
- Defective and nonconforming work claims
- Construction partnership, joint venture and corporation dissolutions
We can effectively evaluate insurance policies to determine if an insurance company should be involved in the resolution of a dispute.
Why Choose Us
Our attorneys recognize that construction disputes can cause significant cost increases that jeopardize profits, as well as jeopardize important business relationships. Therefore, we provide legal advice and representation that protects our clients' current and long-term interests, while maintaining the business relationships that are necessary in construction projects.
Last & Faoro also handles business disputes that arise between members of partnerships, limited liability companies, corporations and joint ventures. Our attorneys also have experience managing corporate and partnership dissolutions at the end of construction projects or in relation to closing out troubled construction projects.
Should You Use Alternative Dispute Resolution Methods?
While construction disputes are common, not all disputes must end in a lawsuit. Our attorneys focus on resolving construction disputes in the most timely and cost effective manner available. Since lawsuits can quickly diminish profits, our lawyers focus in resolving construction disputes efficiently through mediation and arbitration as well as litigation. Nonetheless, our attorneys have the tenacity to effectively handle trial court litigation and appeal in state and federal court, when that is in our client's best interest.
