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.
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).
