We recognize that risk management is instrumental to protect and grow businesses in the construction industry – especially given challenging economic conditions. Thus, we not only provide legal solutions to problems when they arise, but more importantly implement strategies to avoid disputes before they occur. We regularly advise our construction clients on proactive and creative measures to avoid disputes, limit liability exposure, maximize opportunity for success, and minimize attorney fees.

At the first signs of a dispute, we strongly recommend seeking legal advice.  At the Williamson Law Firm, we rely on decades of experience to resolve many disputes through either alternative dispute resolution (ADR) or settlement, rather than costly litigation.

But when disputes between contracting parties cannot be resolved through the ADR process or settlement, they invariably end up in litigation. At the Williamson Law Firm, we are experienced in construction litigation and arbitration. We regularly represent contractors, subcontractors, architects, engineers, and others in the construction industry. These disputes include claims involving claims of lien, payment and performance bonds, negligent design, construction defects, lien foreclosure, real property disputes, breach of warranty, breach of contract, disputes based on open accounts, tortious interference with business relationships, and fraudulent misrepresentation, among other things.  The Williamson Law Firm achieves favorable results for clients of all sizes – from large construction firms to local contractors. We have extensive experience litigating and trying construction cases in federal and state courts as well as before arbitration tribunals.

Construction litigation is complicated, and the Williamson Law Firm knows how to efficiently and cost-effectively manage cases of varying complexity and size.  Regardless of size, we handle each case with tenacity and skill.
