Get past the legal issues and threats that might jeopardize your project.


Construction project costs can run into the millions of dollars. Additionally, construction projects also result in some complex legal issues. Some of the disputes that may need to be addressed include:

  • Increased cost over budget
  • Design or material defects
  • Provisions of insurance or indemnity policies
  • Unanticipated project delays
  • Structural failures that occur unexpectedly
  • Poor project management
  • Performance guarantees or standards not met
  • Sudden termination of work
  • Subcontractors denied site access
  • Fund mismanagement
  • Failed inspections: Who is responsible?

When any of these or other issues occur on your project, you often need the assistance of a litigation attorney who can offer both mediation and arbitration services, since many issues may be settled without forcing a party in the court.

It is also important to understand that should mediation or arbitration fail, Solomon Richman, P.C. is fully prepared to protect your rights and interests in a court of law.


Regardless of how carefully a construction company may be screened, there are any number of problems that can occur.
