The ever-changing legal issues specific to construction and development are unique and complex. I help clients understand and efficiently resolve issues related to construction. I have successfully assisted private property owners, developers, design professionals, general contractors, sureties, subcontractors, and suppliers with resolving disputes.
Contract Negotiation and Enforcement
I represent people and companies who enter into construction agreements. I assist property owners and contractors with negotiating and memorializing their agreements. When it is necessary, I assist my clients with enforcing their rights under a contract.
Home Improvement Act
Connecticut law requires that virtually all work done by a service provider to a consumer’s residence must be written in an agreement and signed by the parties who enter into the agreement. Violation of the home improvement act is the most common construction matter that I handle.
I assist parties with arbitrating contract disputes with JAMS and the American Arbitration Association. Arbitration clauses in contracts are becoming more commonplace as an alternative to full-fledged litigation. However, the intricacies and pitfalls associated with arbitration make this form of alternative dispute resolution tricky in practice. I provide advice and counsel to parties who seek to arbitrate their disputes.
