Representative Case Summaries:
Defense of General Contractor in a construction defect case alleging design-build defects to a below slab sanitary sewer system, which failed due to soil movement. Review of change orders relating to design and specifications, review of contract documents relating to requirements of providing timely notice of alleged defects, along with geotechnical defenses resulted in huge reduction in value of claims.
Representation of mechanical contractor involved in significant exposures based on installation of defective hydronic heating products across hundreds of units. Our successful role in the case was the demonstrated proof of the defects in the manufacture and storage of the Canadian tubing product. This required active pursuit of discovery through two Canadian provinces and to North American headquarters and multiple layers of technical and business management witnesses.
