Condominium & Construction Litigation

Condominium associations and unit owners have unique legal rights arising from condominium governing documents and the Washington Condominium Act. We advise association boards and individual owners with respect to their rights, and also help resolve disputes within associations.

On behalf of our association clients, we have recovered millions of dollars from builders to correct construction defects through negotiation, alternative dispute resolution, and - when necessary - litigation.

In addition, we represent contractors, owners, developers, designers, sureties and other construction professionals on a broad range of issues and disputes. Knowing “the ins and outs” of the construction business and the legal issues that arise in the industry allows us to provide solid advice before, during, and after construction to help our clients avoid potential problems, and sets us apart as excellent litigators and intermediaries when conflicts and disputes arise.

The combination of expertise and close coordination with our clients has yielded consistently positive outcomes for our clients. Specifically, our construction practice helps clients in the following areas:

• Bid Protests
• Construction Defect Claims
• Condominium Association Claims
• Construction-Related Personal Injury Claims
• Contract Negotiation and Advice
• Delay Impact Claims and Disputes
• Fidelity and Surety Matters
• Liens by Contractors or Material Suppliers
• Professional Liability
• Public Contract Bid Protests
