Construction Law

Swift Currie has developed a solid reputation as one of the leading firms in the Southeast for handling construction claims and litigation. We represent general contractors, subcontractors, owners, engineers and architects in a myriad of construction law issues, both as insurance defense counsel and as direct representation of companies and professionals. We have substantial experience in multi-party construction litigation involving a multitude of trades.

There are complexities inherent in these kinds of claims, including numerous indemnification agreements in construction contracts, and many of the disputes are settled through Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) methods. Our attorneys are adept at this kind of arbitration and mediation and have helped our clients obtain favorable results.

Our construction practice group also evaluates and analyzes of complex coverage disputes arising out of construction losses and assists companies in distinguishing between covered and non-covered elements of damage in construction defect lawsuits. We have litigated declaratory judgment actions in a variety of construction defect claims.
