Construction

Goetz & Eckland represents general contractors, developers, and subcontractors of every trade. We handle residential, commercial, and industrial cases, many involving multimillion dollar claims.

We have the technical knowhow and strategic insight to successfully defend construction defect claims of any stripe. These days, it is not enough to just know construction. You have to also know the convoluted world of contractual indemnity and how insurance fits into the picture. The lawyers at Goetz & Eckland know how to put all these pieces together to help their clients navigate complex construction defect claims.

Construction litigation can be extremely expensive. Litigation costs can often surpass the value of a case. We believe it is of utmost importance to gauge exposure and present our clients with their options early on. Only then can they decide the path forward that makes the most sense. Sometimes cases need to be settled early, and sometimes cases need to be tried. Whether at a mediation or in front of an appeals court, the lawyers of Goetz & Eckland provide their clients with unmatched legal knowledge and advice.

We are also routinely asked by clients in the construction industry to either create contracts they can use or review contracts which they have already entered.  We know what these contracts need to provide and how courts will interpret various provisions if they matter were ever in dispute.  We help our construction clients move forward with a better understanding of the contracts that control their work and more contractual protection in those contracts.
