The Firm has represented clients in construction defect, delay, disruption, and acceleration claims involving all aspects of construction. Mr. Weiss has conducted major litigation in many state and federal courts, and has also participated in many arbitrations.

Mr. Weiss recently founded his own construction boutique firm and is able to assist you in drafting and enforcing construction contracts to manage risk in construction matters. We work comfortably with construction managers, project managers, developers, architects, engineers and building owners.

Should a dispute arise between the parties, we are prepared to assist. The firm's dispute resolution experience involves representation of owners, developers, contractors, subcontractors, architects and engineers. In the event an alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation, project neutrals, or the like is unsuccessful, we are litigators.
