Litigation

Once the contract is signed, ASM has skilled attorneys to advise clients through the battlefield of project delivery in order to avoid crises that inevitably surface throughout the course of project delivery. Our preventive maintenance advice keeps projects on track and helps ensure that projects are delivered on time and under budget– every client’s goal. Based on our design and construction experience, our attorneys understand construction law, contracts (which we often prepare on our client’s behalf), and have the ability to read plans and specifications. This allows us to implement risk mitigation strategies on a moment’s notice that would often take others weeks to develop.

Our attorneys have the necessary construction and design backgrounds that provide mandatory resources that others simply cannot offer. This allows us to integrate with our client’s project team and to conduct meaningful site walk-throughs to best understand the nature of the issue and advise on best practices for purposes of keeping your project on track. We assist with negotiating change orders, directives, claims and disputes as they arise and in an effective and efficient manner so as to avoid unnecessary project delays and impacts. Drawing on decades of experience, our attorneys advise clients based on their individual project needs and problems regardless of whether your project is a small tenant-fit out or a large scale high containment laboratory project for the Federal Government.  We advise and develop effective contract close out strategies at project completion to ensure our client is satisfied with the end result.
