Construction Disputes

When construction disputes arise, project developers, commercial real estate owners, general contractors and subcontractors, as well as parties involved in the purchase and sale of various types of real estate properties, count on Weaver for our exceptional responsiveness, experience, skills, and credentials.

Determining damages in construction litigation can be a complex process that requires an understanding of the construction environment as well as financial and forensic skills. Presenting the results of this process to a trier of fact only increases the complexity. The testifier often must explain complicated financial and construction accounting concepts in a clear, concise and understandable manner.

With decades of experience, they can prepare and evaluate complex construction damage claims in a cost efficient and effective manner.

Our professionals have advanced degrees and certifications in areas such as accounting (CPA), valuation (ASA, CVA), financial forensics (CFF, MAFF) and fraud investigation (CFE). This depth of talent allows us to assemble a qualified team to address the most complex issues effectively and efficiently
