Construction litigation has been an area of concentration for our office, which has successfully resolved over 35 transition litigations recovering more than sixty million dollars ($60,000,000.00) for our clients.
Community Associations need to be sure they are represented by experienced and seasoned attorneys when they assume control of the Association from a Developer. This period of time is crucial for a Community Association to ensure that their buildings and common property are properly built and the Association accounts have been properly funded. Time is often of the essence to protect any claims that may exist from expiring due to statutes of limitation or repose. Our experience and expertise can assist in navigating an Association through this complicated time.
We work closely with your Transition Engineer to ensure that any identified deficiencies are properly documented and presented to the Developer in hopes of resolution without litigation. We strive to achieve the resolution of problems through mediation or negotiated settlements. However, when necessary, we have the experience and expertise to prosecute transition claims against the Developer and/or Subcontractors, Architects and/or Engineers. Over the years, we have recovered over sixty million dollars ($60,000,000.00) for our clients. From 2014 through 2017 alone, we successfully resolved four transition cases achieving settlements totaling in excess of twenty million dollars ($20,000,000.00). After receipt of proceeds from transition claims, Community Associations often engage contractors to perform construction repairs and/or modifications to the community. Our office has extensive experience working with our client's qualified Engineers to ensure that remediation projects are performed according to carefully drafted contracts to protect our client's interests.
