Construction Litigation

Every building project has the potential to result in a construction dispute. Disagreements about scheduling, scope, payment, and the end product are unfortunate but not uncommon. Our attorneys have substantial experience in addressing such disagreements and have represented owners, developers, contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, design professionals, surety companies, liability insurance carriers, and others in all aspects of real estate development and construction-related disputes throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, and the Southeast.

Our goal is to meet our clients’ needs at every stage of the construction process. In many cases, we can protect our clients’ interests at the contract stage through careful and focused negotiation and drafting of construction contracts and subcontracts. However, when unanticipated disputes arise, we have experience prosecuting and defending a wide variety of construction claims through mediation, arbitration and litigation, including:

• Mechanic’s lien claims
• Breach of warranty claims
• Defect claims
• Delay and liquidated damages claims
• Contract termination disputes
• Bid disputes
• Payment and performance bond claims
• Title disputes

At Alexander Ricks PLLC, we know a construction dispute is not what our clients expected when they began their project. We want our response to that dispute to exceed their expectations and provide the necessary balance of aggressive but efficient advocacy. We strive to engage our clients in every stage of the litigation process to ensure the services we provide lead to a successful resolution of the dispute.
