Construction Law

Dailey LLP’s Construction Law Practice Group has decades of experience with all facets of the transactional and litigation needs of the commercial construction industry.

The firm engages in both the prosecution and defense of commercial contract litigation before state and federal courts in Pennsylvania, Delaware, New York and New Jersey, as well as other jurisdictions, and has had substantial experience in the arbitration and mediation of construction industry claims and disputes before the American Arbitration Association.

The firm’s experience in handling construction claims covers every conceivable type of construction-related dispute, including:

  • delays and inefficiencies;
  • defective work and technical failures of building systems and components;
  • multi-prime and multiple party claims, counter-claims and contests;
  • commercial liability insurance disputes;
  • professional liability claims involving architects and engineers;
  • payment bond and performance bond claims, litigation and disputes;
  • payment disputes, change order and extra-work claims, including contractual and statutory;
  • claims for interest, penalties and attorneys’ fees under state “prompt pay laws”; and
  • bankruptcy and reorganization in the construction context.

Our Construction Law Practice Group also has an extensive commercial construction industry transactions practice, including the representation of public and private owners, developers, general contractors, professionals, subcontractors, suppliers and sureties in the negotiation and preparation of professional services agreements, bid and contract documents and related construction industry agreements.

In addition, our attorneys have been retained as “special construction counsel” to assist several public school districts and other private higher educational institutions in the preparation of bid and contract documents for multi-million dollar capital renovation programs; retained by a large, national financial services firm to prepare standard form design professional and construction management agreements for office expansion projects throughout the United States; and, retained by a large regional hospital to prepare project design professional and construction management agreements.
