Large-scale construction projects typically involve multiple entities in a complex sequence of independent events and transactions. Thus, when disputes undoubtedly arise, the engagement of professionals with construction industry experience, as well as an understanding of the dispute resolution process, is critical.
Hemming Morse brings both the necessary experience and comprehensive knowledge to these proceedings.
Our professionals regularly assist a range of project participants, including owners, contractors, engineers and designers, lenders, sureties, and insurance companies in disputes ranging from relatively simple construction cost accounting issues to complex claims involving millions to hundreds of millions of dollars. As a result, we are familiar with the pricing and presentation of these issues, including extra work, delay, disruption, loss of productivity, completion and repair work, and equitable adjustment and termination costs. Our experience also includes overhead, construction cost, and special purpose audits, cost monitoring, quantification of allowable costs, proper pricing of change orders, fraud and forensic investigations including false claims, and compliance with contractual provisions.
