Our Commercial and Corporate Litigation Services

Typically in a construction dispute, one party is seeking monetary damages due to an economic loss on a construction project.

The types of construction and litigation services include:

  • Breach of contract
  • Contract disputes
  • Professional negligence
  • Construction or workmanship defects
  • Defective products
  • Construction delays
  • Job abandonment
  • Payment claims
  • Performance bonds

What are construction disputes?

Disputes can arise between those involved in a construction project, and when those issues cannot be resolved, the opposing parties often go into litigation, meaning to trial.
Our first step is to investigate your case to acquire evidence, witnesses and documentation. With our findings, we can then build a strong case and case strategy to provide our clients with the best opportunity for a favorable outcome.

McCarthy & Akers, PLC works with home and business owners, investors, stakeholders, developers, contractors, subcontractors, and other construction professionals to help resolve real estate-related disputes via mediation, arbitration or litigation.
