Construction Litigation


Our firm has a diverse construction law practice and provides comprehensive legal services to a variety of members in the construction industry. Our attorneys regularly represent private owners, school districts, general contractors, design professionals, subcontractors and suppliers in all phases of construction related litigation, arbitration, and mediation.


We are also experienced in handling a broad spectrum of disputes that arise during the course of a construction project, including issues relating to:

  • change orders,

  • contract disputes,

  • non-payment claims,

  • defective construction and product claims,

  • delay claims,

  • insurance coverage claims,

  • mechanics’ liens and bond claims against sureties, and

  • warranty claims.


Our attorneys understand the complexities and intricacies of the various types of construction projects and recognize the financial impact associated with performance issues and contractor disputes. We work with our clients to develop a meaningful and cost effective approach to meet our clients’ objectives. Our attorneys strive to successfully resolve our clients’ construction disputes with an eye towards avoiding litigation costs, preserving business relationships and minimizing project delays.

However, if litigation is unavoidable (or strategically preferable),we are seasoned litigators prepared to zealously advocate on behalf of our construction clients.


The attorneys at Santiago Burger LLP have lectured members of the construction industry and other legal professionals on the American Institute of Architects (AIA) family of contract documents and are experienced in the preparation, review and negotiation of construction agreements and bidding documents. This knowledge and experience allows us to effectively counsel our construction clients during the initial phases of a construction project in a manner that maximizes profits, minimizes potential liability, and avoids disputes in the future.
