|Since construction issues vary by complexity and value, Cohen & Lord attorneys tailor their services to provide clients with the most effective representation and legal services appropriate to their needs. With state of the art technology in information systems, graphics and database management, the firm can streamline its practice for less complex matters, such as filing and enforcing mechanic's liens, or provide advance legal services for very complex, document-intensive, high stakes litigation.
Cohen & Lord provides its clients with advice and counsel, whether or not a claim has been made in a particular matter. The firm's clients often request assistance prior to formal claims being made regarding matters such as document subpoenas, deposition notices, and contract interpretation. For example, a client may be asked to give deposition testimony and produce documents prior to being named in an ongoing lawsuit, or a client may find itself embroiled in a dispute concerning a current project. Prompt attention to requests for information and assistance can serve to
||avoid the filing of an actual claim, or operate to narrow and reduce the scope of a claim that is later made. In any event, crucial missteps on the part of the client can be avoided.
Should litigation be unavoidable, our practice includes asserting or defending our clients against construction, warranty and other claims. The firm's attorneys have extensive experience in representing building owners and construction industry professionals regarding defects in design and/or construction resulting in water intrusion and resultant growth of mold, bacteria, fungus and mycotoxins.
