We understand key contractual, technical, regulatory, scheduling/critical path analysis and cost issues involved in construction projects and disputes.

Construction Disputes

Our team of construction litigators stands ready to apply its extensive experience in the resolution of all manner of construction disputes, including payment and performance disputes, surety and insurance disputes and disputes involving defective design and construction work.

GAC also regularly assists our contractor clients in the avoidance, prosecution and defense of claims ranging from the collection of contract payments to complex and sophisticated construction matters such as those associated with delay, disruption and acceleration of construction projects.

When disputes and disagreements arise in the context of construction projects, we draw on our extensive Puerto Rico and U.S. federal litigation experience to effectively pursue client interests. Our construction dispute attorneys have also represented clients in litigation at all levels involving contested building and zoning matters, purchase agreement and lease contract disputes, mechanics' liens-type claims, delay claims, change order claims, personal injury claims and structural failure disputes.

Alternative Dispute Resolution in Construction Law

We also represent clients through alternative dispute resolution methods, including arbitration, mediation and settlement. Before and after disputes are resolved, we conduct analyses to determine how such problems can be avoided and more effectively resolved when they do arise.
