Purcell & Wardrope has decades of experience representing companies in the construction industry in a broad range of matters. Our trial attorneys have achieved favorable defense verdicts in construction negligence cases in some of the most difficult venues in the nation. This is one of the reasons why contractors call on us to investigate construction sites in the hours after an accident. Our team has extensive experience in post-accident investigations and have reconstruction experts, safety consultants, and other professionals on standby. A successful defense strategy begins with having the right people in place before an accident occurs.
Our construction litigators do more than negligence cases. We defend contractors in OSHA proceedings, construction defect disputes, coverage litigation, and breach of contract claims.
We also understand the challenges contractors face before the lawsuit is filed. That is why we take an aggressive approach to transferring our clients’ risk to other parties and relentlessly enforce the coverage rights of design professionals, owners, and contractors. Our clients know that an effective risk transfer program starts well before breaking ground. It begins with an expertly crafted contract that is specific to each jurisdiction.
