Planning for the Prevention and Resolution of Disputes

The successful construction project requires careful planning and counsel throughout the process in order to avoid costly delays and burdensome litigation. Our team has experience in the prevention of disputes through the preparation of agreements with all parties relating to the design and construction of the project, as well as the proper planning and execution of a successful bidding process. We are prepared to help our clients navigate the various methods of project procurement and construction, from the traditional Design-Bid-Build to Design-Build and the various options involving Construction Managers at Risk and otherwise, Multi-Prime Contractors, and Fast-Track design and construction.

Despite the best planning efforts, disputes often arise in the course of design, bidding, and construction of projects regardless of the size. We are prepared to represent our clients in any dispute involving issues which arise from conception through final completion and beyond, including the investigation and solution of design and construction defects in existing buildings and infrastructure projects.

With a 25 year career practicing law in South Carolina, Pat’s practice includes complex construction/design defect litigation, major commercial insurance liability litigation, Federal, State and local government contract formation and procurement, dispute resolution, and complex tort and commercial litigation.
