Construction defect litigation and construction-related matters

Murphy Armstrong has extensive experience in construction defect litigation and construction-related matters. We have successfully litigated construction defect matters in a wide variety of areas including faulty siding and improper installation, exterior envelope failures, roofing membrane failures, EIFS and synthetic stucco, window failures, water intrusion, flashing details, mold, off-gassing and vapor intrusion, and indoor air quality claims. We also have extensive experience handling insurance coverage issues related to construction defect claims.

Insurance industry clients often retain us to handle insurance coverage disputes arising from and related to construction projects, defect claims, and construction site catastrophic injury matters. Our attorneys also have unique appellate experience with construction defect matters and insurance coverage issues, and have not only successfully prosecuted and defended such appeals, but have also recovered significant attorneys’ fees awards for our clients on appeal.

The lawyers of Murphy Armstrong also benefit from serving a host of construction industry and developer clients with construction-related advice and dispute resolution, which informs and enhances our ability to effectively handle construction defect disputes. Our lawyers routinely handle construction disputes and litigated matters in areas including breach of contract, construction industry arbitrations, failures to follow plans and/or specifications, building code violations, construction liens and lien foreclosure actions.
