Construction transactions and litigation have specific issues that require an attorney who knows the business. At Robins Kaplan LLP, our construction litigation lawyers provide both transactional and litigation services that encompass nearly every aspect of the construction industry. With a variety of complex construction litigation experience on both public and private projects, we have assisted clients in first-party contracts (coverage disputes on construction-related issues), prosecuting and defending third-party affirmative claims, the evaluation and resolution of construction contract disputes, and the negotiation and drafting of construction agreements.
For surety clients, our construction litigation attorneys have extensive experience in the evaluation, resolution and litigation of payment and performance bond claims. This includes the handling of small, large and multi-project defaults to achieve a timely completion of open projects while mitigating losses and maximizing recovery efforts. In addition, we have represented these clients on matters arising out of fiduciary bonds, litigation bonds, license and permit bonds, and other miscellaneous bond matters, as well as provided necessary training and counseled clients on state regulations and Department of Insurance requirements.
