Construction Litigation

Wolkin Curran’s construction practice capitalizes on the firm’s strong understanding of risk management, insurance and bond issues to provide clients with a comprehensive solution to pre-contract, course of construction and, if necessary, litigation disputes. The construction industry faces unique challenges that are often directly impacted by the volatility of the California commercial and residential real estate market. Legal issues can arise at every stage of project construction. Wolkin Curran’s attorneys take equal pride in their ability to guide industry clients as consultants through project completion as well as to zealously and aggressively represent clients when disputes unavoidably mature into litigation.

Through the years, the firm has represented contractors, subcontractors and professionals engaged in a number of trade disciplines with particularly deep experience and expertise in the glazing, façade and exterior cladding fields.

Wolkin Curran provides legal services and consultation for the full range of construction activity, including contract review and analysis, bid protest, change order and payment disputes, delay and impact disputes, preservation and enforcement of lien rights and stop notice rights, administrative and code compliance issues, insurance coverage compliance and analysis, enforcement and defense of contractual and equitable claims, litigation and appeal representation in California and Federal Courts.

Wolkin Curran is pleased to provide contractor-level training to industry clients in bid and contract formation as well as course of construction management to foster informal dispute resolution. Every aspect of the firm’s construction practice is subject to the particular focus on achieving the client’s goals with sensitivity to the cost/benefit impact of legal services.
