The construction industry plays a vital role in any economy, especially in Iowa and Illinois and the Quad City area. We have extensive legal experience with complex construction matters, construction liens, mechanic liens, enforcement of contracts, broker agreements, sub-division and zoning matters as well as construction defect or warranty matters. Our clients include individuals and companies that are involved with all types of construction including business projects, residential, commercial, retail, industrial, multi-family structures and single family homes. We have successfully represented property owners, contractors, architects, brokers, homeowner associations, businesses and individual homeowners.
Our firm has handled a wide range of construction disputes, including construction defect or warranty cases that involve multi-million dollar projects, and the smaller – several hundred thousand dollar – projects. Construction defects claims may relate to workmanship, defective product, improper design, weather or water intrusion, as well incomplete projects, disputes over payment of debt and filing of liens and enforcement of the contracts.
Resolving these issues can, and often do, involve great deal of time, effort, creativity and money. The burden and expenses required to correct the cause of the problem may be the responsibility of a general contractor or builder, or a subcontractor, or supplier, project manager, architect, and sometimes involves the manufacturer of building products, materials or equipment used during construction.
We will assess the details of your situation and if necessary, bring in proven experts in their field to help determine whether there has been negligence or fault. We will assist our clients to try to resolve matters by settlement, which may include mediation or arbitration. However, if settlement is not possible, a trial in court is needed. We bring all of our experience, education, creativity, work ethic and resources to help our clients.
