Construction Project Claims Analysis & Litigation
Proven Advocacy by One of The Top Construction Law Firms in Texas
Construction claims and disputes are a reality of the business. Andrews Myers, P.C., provides front-end analysis to minimize disputes, solutions for conflicts arising mid-stream, and post-project resolution of claims both in and out of court.
Our Texas construction law practice based in Houston represents any party to a construction contract, prosecuting or defending claims on behalf of owners, contractors and other providers. We aim to avoid the cost and domino effect of a collapsed deal, work stoppage or full-blown litigation. Our team of accomplished trial lawyers includes seasoned construction arbitrators, and serves clients throughout the Coastal Bend and statewide Texas.
Andrews Myers, P.C. routinely advises and represents clients in disputes over:
- Project delays
- Acceleration or compression of the schedule
- Cost overruns
- Change orders and extra work
- Disruption and loss of labor productivity
- Differing site conditions
- Defective design or construction
- Unacceptable workmanship or substituted materials
- Termination and default
- Non-payment (mechanics’ liens and payment bond claims)
Reviewing Construction Contracts for Potential Disputes
With more than 20 years of experience in construction claims, our attorneys have the practiced eye to spot potential conflicts and exposures and address them in construction contract negotiations and review.
Construction Mid-Project Delays, Accelerations and Disputes
We are adept at forging realistic solutions to conflicts that threaten to disrupt the project or leave our client on the hook for unforeseen costs. Our lawyers can intervene swiftly to mediate disputes or negotiate a workable compromise before a formal claim is filed, or to get the case before a judge who can break the impasse.
Post-Completion Claims Analysis and Litigation
In court, our experience in construction claims increases the odds of a positive ruling or “equitable adjustment” in our client’s favor. But prior to instituting litigation, we sit down with clients for an in-depth discussion of cost-effectiveness, likelihood of success, and the ramifications (win or lose) of arbitration or litigation.
Andrews Myers, P.C., is ranked by the legal directory Chambers USA as one of the top construction law firms in all of Texas, and two of our attorneys sit on the prestigious American Arbitration Association’s National Panel of Construction Arbitrators.
