Today, the Firm’s expertise in construction law has grown to such an extent that our representation of construction industry clients has become both diversified and specialized.  Meyer, Unkovic & Scott has a broad range of construction industry experience representing clients in all sectors of the industry, including general contractors, subcontractors, owners, developers, construction managers, architects, engineers, suppliers, insurance companies, lenders and sureties.

When disputes arise, we provide experienced litigation counsel that draws on years of representing clients before state and federal courts, state and federal administrative agencies and tribunals in foreign countries.  We have experience litigating numerous construction claims, including defects, extra work, delay and disruption, acceleration, lost labor productivity and idle equipment.  We also have experience addressing differing site conditions, rejection of non-conforming work, suspensions, terminations, mechanics’ liens, payment and performance bonds, insurance, liquidated damages and warranties. Our attorneys are also experienced in construction arbitration matters, and are often called upon by other law firms to serve as mediators and arbitrators.
