Construction Litigation

Making Sense of Claims and Defenses in Construction Litigation

Troubled construction projects have a way of spreading the misery. Disputes over performance or payment can spawn further claims for defense or indemnification against third parties or insurance companies. If your company is a party to construction litigation, it stands to benefit from the advice of trial attorneys who not only can meet the demands of the original lawsuit but also can steer it through a complex courtroom battle.

Resolving Disputes in Residential and Commercial Construction

Contact the Santa Ana litigation firm of Callahan & Blaine for attentive client service and practical litigation solutions for construction disputes in Orange County and Southern California. Although the right approach to any case depends on the specific facts and relationships involved, our general strategy from one situation to another covers three essential litigation needs:

  • Preparing your initial claim or defense based on a thorough understanding of the facts, the law and your long-range objectives
  • Identifying all parties who might be liable to you on the original claim, on cross-claims or counterclaims, or for indemnification of your own potential liability
  • Getting the maximum benefit of all applicable insurance coverage for defense, indemnification, business interruption or casualty loss, depending on the facts of your case

Whether your civil action involves contract, warranty or tort claims — or any combination of these — you can depend on Callahan & Blaine to develop and execute the litigation strategy that best meets your needs. Our clients range from small builders and subcontractors to owners, developers, purchasers and homeowner associations.
