The attorneys at Mullavey, Prout, Grenley, & Foe have represented homeowners, contractors, materialmen, property owners, and businesses in construction litigation for more than thirty years. Our traditional representation of all of the various players in construction litigation provides Mullavey, Prout, Grenley, & Foe attorneys with the perspective necessary to bring construction claims to quick and cost-effective resolutions, often without need for a lawsuit. Should a lawsuit become necessary, our attorneys have litigated and tried construction defect cases in state and federal courts.
Our experience in construction claims runs the gamut from representing homeowners seeking redress for overcharges, to the resolution of large commercial construction disputes. We have experience litigating a wide variety of defects, including roofing, siding, flashing assemblies, windows and doors, below-grade foundation systems and waterproofing, heating and ventilation, plumbing, electrical, masonry, fixtures, site preparation, grading and fill, and drainage issues, code-compliance, and the simple failure to follow the bid.
Oftentimes construction defect cases are less about the defects themselves, but rather boil down to disputes over costs. We regularly assist homeowners and contractors to negotiate, or if necessary, litigate disputes regarding the propriety of change orders, additional work, quantum meruit claims, and other construction billing and cost disputes.
In addition, we help homeowners and contractors navigate the requirements for contractor registration and bonding.
Finally, we assist clients with construction related issues, such as insurance coverage; preparation and filing of pre-lien notices; lien foreclosure; and representation of homeowners and property owners who have received frivolous claims of lien.
