Construction Litigation

New York Construction Litigation Attorney

Whether well-established custom home builder or acting as your own general contractor trying to build the home of your dreams, disputes can cost you time and money, rob you of the enjoyment of your property, and seriously threaten your business. Steven Altman, Esq. helps clients who are mired in controversy get relief and move their projects forward. I negotiate, arbitrate, mediate and litigate cases arising from:

  • Breach of contract
  • Collections
  • Construction bond claims
  • Construction defect
  • Construction delay
  • Mechanic’s liens and materialman’s liens
  • Subcontractor performance

I represent clients involved in all aspects of construction, including homeowners, homeowner associations, businesses, general contractors, subcontractors, developers, lenders, bond and surety companies, design professionals, and suppliers of materials.

Thorough investigation by knowledgeable professionals

Establishing fault in construction cases often requires specialized knowledge of industry practices and standards. I have substantial experience working with qualified expert general contractors, surveyors, engineers and architects.

Mediation and arbitration services

Often parties can avoid expense and delay by mediating disputes about provisions in construction contracts. Moreover, many construction contracts have clauses that require nonbinding or binding arbitration to resolve disputes. I have experience representing parties at arbitration and mediation proceedings. I often negotiate lasting solutions that save my clients time and money and allow them to get their projects back on track.

Fair and just compensation

If you are having difficulty collecting on a construction job or have been harmed by a construction defect or a contractor or subcontractor’s failure to perform, you are entitled to ample compensation covering:

  • Actual damages, including the past and future costs of repairing and restoring your damaged property, and any contents damaged due to the defect (such as water damage caused by faulty plumbing)
  • Compensation for the loss of the use and enjoyment of your property, including inconvenience, aggravation, and discomfort
  • Compensation for appraisal fees, storage charges and cleaning costs incurred
  • Compensation for the reasonable cost of rental of similar property during periods when your property could not be used
  • Under limited circumstances, exemplary or punitive damages, intended to punish a defendant and deter particularly malicious or reckless conduct in the future
  • Interest on your damages as permitted by law
  • Attorney fees and costs if provided for in your contract

I am determined to help you collect fair compensation for the sum of your losses in a timely manner.
