Construction

Construction law is composed of several distinct areas of legal practice arising out of or relating to claims documentation on behalf of owners, general contractors and subcontractors; contractual negotiations; claims of occupational or consumer product exposure to toxic substances; products liability; and accidents in either industrial, residential or commercial settings.

This type of litigation is usually characterized by the following factors: multiple parties doing business in a common work place; contractual and insurance agreements with multi-party applicability; multi-county or multi-state forums; multiple insurers of individual parties; extensive construction-related and business records; and multiple personal injury or death plaintiffs claiming a common chemical or material-related exposure or a disaster occurrence.
