Delay & Impact Claims/ Defense

Construction delays in the building industry are among the most litigated construction disputes.  Delays and disruptions can result from a number of issues, including design modifications, price disputes, permit and approval problems, and differing site conditions.  The attorneys at Ferencik Libanoff Brandt Bustamante & Goldstein, P.A. have extensive experience in evaluating, negotiating, and litigating all types of delay and impact claims. 

Our firm appreciates the enormous impact that work schedule delays or disruptions can have on businesses and professionals working in the construction industry.  When our clients are dealing with a delay on a project, our attorneys collaborate with expert resources to independently investigate each claim.   Our lawyers are highly skilled in working with scheduling experts to conduct delay analyses, including the application of Critical Path Method (“CPM”) scheduling techniques to defend and prosecute delay and impact claims. We work as a team to identify every party on a project who may bear some responsibility for the delay, along with the specific causes for the delay. Our firm also analyzes the impact of the disruption on project schedules and evaluates the extent of any alleged damages resulting from the delay.

Our attorneys work to resolve delay and impact claims as quickly and efficiently as possible.  If a dispute cannot be settled amicably, we aggressively develop strategies aimed at protecting and defending the interests of our clients.
