Construction Litigation

We are ready to represent our clients in negotiation, mediation, and dispute resolution, whether in arbitration or court proceedings. Our firm includes construction attorneys in Las Vegas and lawyers who are licensed to practice in Nevada, California and other states. Our construction attorneys have appeared in the state and federal courts in several states on both the trial and appellate level.

We also counsel our clients with the aim of preventing problems before they become claims. We understand that litigation is expensive to the client; proceeding to litigation is a serious matter. Our construction lawyers make every effort to provide cost-effective representation and are skilled in using alternative dispute resolution, both to save costs and resolve disputes in what might well be a cost-containment manner with an expeditious resolution.
