Holt Woods & Scisciani LLP provides a broad range of litigation and consulting services relating to commercial and residential construction. Our construction litigation experience ranges from cases involving claims of construction defects in large multi-family condominium complexes and commercial buildings to claims of toxic mold exposure in single family residences. Our attorneys have extensive experience litigating and arbitrating construction-related claims on behalf of owners, developers, contractors, subcontractors, construction managers, suppliers, manufacturers, design professionals, risk insurers and sureties. Holt Woods & Scisciani LLP’s vast knowledge of construction issues also encompasses job site injuries and investigations.
One of Holt Woods & Scisciani LLP’s specialties is taking the lead and managing complex multi-party construction litigation on behalf of developers and general contractors. When a developer or general contractor is sued, and must in turn pursue a lawsuit against the subcontractors who performed the allegedly defective work, they need to have experienced attorneys who can rise to that challenge. We have successfully and repeatedly met that challenge and has successfully tried cases to verdict involving a variety of construction disputes.
In addition to specializing in all aspects of construction litigation, attorneys at Holt Woods & Scisciani LLP regularly work with clients on non-litigation matters. We frequently draft, negotiate, and interpret contracts and otherwise provide consulting services for our clients. Although the firm enjoys litigation, in our role as counselors it is our goal to advise our clients — and create clearly defined contracts — to not only help them avoid litigation, but also place them in the strongest position should a dispute arise.
Holt Woods & Scisciani LLP remains on the “cutting edge” regarding the latest developments in construction law. Because the firm’s primary goal is to help our clients avoid potential disputes and problems, we regularly distribute an informal e-mail newsletter designed to provide an update on such developments, including new legislation and the latest appellate decisions.
