Contractor Relieved From False Accusations

Written By Oscar Soto

During a multi-day mediation, firm lawyers, Oscar E. Soto and Felena R. Talbott, resolved a 10 million dollar dispute between a developer and general contractor arising from the construction of a high rise condominium project overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The developer alleged that the contractor delayed the project two years due to mismanagement and performance of defective work. The general contractor alleged that the owner’s design documents were fatally defective and that the owner failed to approve/pay 3 million dollars in change orders. Utilizing scheduling experts and other consultants, the firm’s lawyers were able to focus responsibility for the delays on the deficient drawings/design team and the owner-directed extra work.
