Construction Litigation

Built for success

Overview

Construction disputes are among the most complex, high-stakes commercial litigation matters, potentially involving millions of dollars in liability as well as damage to valued reputations and relationships. MG+M’s skilled team protects the interests of the world’s largest owners, contractors, and subcontractors in critical cases involving major construction projects nationwide.

National coverage for high-stakes conflicts
Our attorneys have extensive experience litigating multimillion-dollar construction claims throughout the United States. We represent you vigorously in every forum and at every stage, from pre-litigation investigations to settlement negotiations, motion practice, arbitration, trials, and appeals. Working closely with your team, we develop and execute best-for-business strategies in breach of contract, building delay, cost overrun, fraudulent invoice, and other construction disputes.

Valuable industry knowledge
Although most construction contracts are dense with detailed timelines, punch lists, and other details, successful litigation outcomes rely on understanding what is truly at the heart of the dispute. We save you time and money by focusing on the main conflict instead of getting bogged down in side questions that prolong disputes and raise legal fees. Because we’ve worked with the construction industry for decades, we understand which issues are worth litigating and which should be resolved through negotiation. And, as more and more construction stakeholders submit disputes to arbitration, our focus on pivotal issues often brings favorable rulings from panels charged with finding fair, efficient solutions.

Fully invested in our clients
Our attorneys are deeply invested in achieving the best possible outcomes for your business. We seek to earn your trust, not only as advisors, but also as dedicated business partners. To that end, we pride ourselves on frequent, candid communication and on total accessibility whenever you need us.
