Arent Fox represents clients in cases involving a wide range of projects, including office buildings, multifamily housing and residential condominiums, health care facilities, bridges, courthouses, industrial process facilities, sports stadiums, roads, shopping centers, power plants, subway facilities, and insurance-related claims on behalf of insureds.
We handle the full range of construction disputes, with particular experience and capability in delay, disruption, and acceleration claims; default terminations; design changes and deficiencies; concealed condition;, structural failures and interpretation; and reformation or rescission of contract terms. Our construction attorneys have litigated cases in virtually every forum in which construction disputes arise, including state and federal courts and American Arbitration Association proceedings throughout the United States to International Code Council (ICC) arbitrations and sovereign boards of grievance internationally. We are familiar with the rules and practices for complex, multiparty litigation in these varied forums.
Arent Fox represents clients at every stage of proceedings, from initial claim through trial and appeal. Often, however, litigation is not in the client's best interest, and we frequently use mediation and other alternative dispute resolution mechanisms to settle cases favorably without the necessity of trial.
