Construction Law

Shackelford has a strong foundation in all areas of construction law and construction/design defect litigation, including negligence, breach of contract, statutory and deceptive-trade-practice claims, lien claims, and breach of warranty claims. We are experienced in all phases of construction litigation, from commercial and shopping-center/warehouse disputes, to single-family and large, multi-family residential construction problems.

Our clients include homeowners, developers, builders, general contractors, sub-contractors, and investors. We guide and assist you to make sound decisions, from drafting and negotiation of contracts, claim analysis, to trial preparation and litigation or arbitration.

We also understand the importance of settlement before lengthy litigation and we are experienced negotiators. While early resolution may be possible, our attorneys are experienced, recognized, and successful in taking these matters all the way, whether that means arbitration, or the courthouse, including state and federal appeals.
