Neubert, Pepe & Monteith’s Construction Law and Design Professional Liability practice provides a broad array of services encompassing all phases of the design and construction process, from construction contract formation and negotiation through close out, claims analysis and litigation. We represent public and private owners, design professionals, and contractors in commercial, institutional, residential and public works projects throughout Connecticut. We handle architectural, structural, mechanical, electrical, product liability, site planning, civil engineering, surveying, and traffic control planning litigation. We have also handled personal injury and death cases arising from construction projects, ranging from indoor air quality to industrial accidents, equipment accidents, automobile accidents, and construction accidents. We have also handled construction-related products liability matters including defective construction products and negligent product installation. We work with many of the country’s professional liability insurers to provide pre-claim and claim representation to design professionals, including architects, engineers, land surveyors and interior designers.
We offer assistance with drafting, reviewing and negotiating contracts, both standardized and customized. We troubleshoot problems that arise during a project in an effort to avoid formal claims and/or litigation. We also provide mediation and private arbitration services for construction disputes.
