Construction Claim Preparation Attorneys in Granite Bay, California

Assertively Pursuing or Defending Construction Claims

Construction claims may arise because of many contributing factors, such as time-related damages, losses in productivity, and cost overruns on labor, material, or equipment. Effectively preparing and prosecuting a construction claim requires developing appropriate entitlement arguments and implementing suitable methods to quantify damages sustained that are based on contemporaneous project documentation. The construction lawyers at Herrig, Vogt & Hensley, LLP have the experience and knowledge required to advise and assist with the claim preparation or defense process.

Sometimes it can be difficult for contractors, owners, and architect-engineers to explain the daily dynamics on a job site to legal counsel who may not have a construction background. At Herrig, Vogt & Hensley, LLP, you will find that our construction law attorneys and in-house claims analysts have the experience, knowledge, and technical acumen to communicate clearly with your project and corporate personnel, as well as your opposing party. We can aggressively pursue your claim and effectively reach a fair and beneficial resolution to your construction dispute.

For more than 30 years, Herrig, Vogt & Hensley, LLP has represented construction clients throughout California, Washington, Nevada, Utah, Alaska, and Montana from our office in Sacramento, California, and from our Washington offices in Kennewick and Redmond.

We are more than construction lawyers — our analysts have firsthand experience managing and administering large and complex construction projects. We understand the necessary requirements to properly prepare and document a demand for additional compensation and claims on public, governmental, and private contracts. As a corollary, we also know how to defend against claims that do not meet the requisite standards to succeed.
