In Pennsylvania, our attorneys have been involved in many of the highest profile construction disputes in the region in the last 30 years. We represented a target defendant in a major landslide that blocked a highway and a railroad during site preparation for a retail store. The massive landslide shut down the highway and railroad for weeks.

We represented a target subcontractor in a multi-million dollar demand lawsuit alleging construction defects involving cracks in the concrete decks and beams of a parking garage. The case, involving many parties and their insurers, settled for a fraction of the original demand.

In West Virginia, our attorneys represented one of the largest construction contractors and engineering firms in the world in the collapse of a waste coal silo at a power plant that resulted in the death of a utility worker and business interruption claims.
