Construction Litigation

Disputes involving construction, contractors, subcontractors, so-called home "warranty" companies, and materialmen, have their own special rules and quirks. An attorney who works in this area must know the nuances of contract law, trial practice, building and housing codes, as well as the unwritten standards that apply to the construction and home improvement industry.

Negligent construction is widespread. It's also a technically complex area of litigation, requiring skill and courtroom techniques that can only come through experience. The firm is in nobody's "pocket." It represents developers, builders, general contractors, subcontractors, insurance companies, and (last but NOT least) home and building owners. Knowing and understanding both perspectives gives the firm the ability to hone its skills and to anticipate the strategy of the opposing parties in construction disputes.

Rick Alembik's construction experience began with his first summer jobs as a teenager working for civil engineers and landscape architects, and has continued through 20 years of practicing construction law. Because of his reputation he has been invited to lecture on the subject to lawyers, and to consult with state legislators on construction-related legislation (covering such subjects as materialmens' liens and the regulation of home inspectors).
