Construction Law & Construction Defect
Over the course of our more than 40 year history, Taunton, Snyder & Parish have represented clients in all aspects of the construction industry. We have represented those who design, engineer, develop, and build all types of structures and improvements, including commercial buildings, residential complexes, industrial facilities, hotels, hospitals, universities, shopping centers, highways, pipelines, bridges, power plants, retaining walls, and bulkheads.
The firm's lawyers have extensive experience in representing clients in the contractual disputes which result from the commercial aspects of construction transactions and also the personal injury and property damage claims which can often arise during and after a construction project. We have handled breach of contract cases, warranty claims, lien disputes, and indemnity issues, as well as claims for wrongful death, catastrophic personal injuries, and a variety of construction defect cases, including sick building and mold contamination claims.
Of course, our lawyers handle more than just the contractual and tort litigation which sometimes is associated with construction projects. We also provide legal advice over a broad range of transactions before litigation arises. Our construction clients seek our guidance in construction contract drafting and review, contract negotiations, risk management and insurance, default assessments, liens, regulatory issues, and even surety and bonding. Through measured advice, we are often able to help our clients minimize their prospective risk or avoid litigation altogether.
