Construction Litigation

When construction disputes escalate, the ramifications are serious. Work sites shut down. Or people don't get paid. Or owners are slapped with liens. In many cases, there is a chain reaction of cross-claims and counterclaims.

Our construction litigation attorneys have the industry knowledge and courtroom experience to step into the fray. The Barbknecht Firm, P.C., in Plano, Texas, represents property owners and buyers, contractors and subcontractors, construction managers and developers, architects and engineers, material suppliers and utility providers throughout the Dallas Metroplex in all aspects of the construction process.

We aim to resolve conflicts as swiftly as possible so that projects can resume, bosses can meet payroll and property is not encumbered. If we can't reach a practical resolution, or if you have suffered compensable losses, our accomplished trial lawyers will go to court to get results.

Resolving Construction Disputes In Plano, Richardson And Beyond

Joseph Barbknecht has litigated in more than 150 different Texas counties, through arbitration and in state and federal courts. He is familiar with all types of construction disputes:

  • Materialman's and mechanic's liens (nonpayment)
  • Change orders and cost overruns
  • Contract performance (incomplete/abandoned project)
  • Construction defects (structural, water intrusion, workmanship)
  • Breach of contract or warranty
  • Surety claims

We perfect property liens and in extreme cases will follow through to foreclosure to get clients compensated for work performed. Conversely, we hold contractors accountable for substandard work or nonperformance. We pursue all appropriate remedies, including injunctions, specific performance and monetary damages.

Negotiating Construction Deals
Ambiguous construction contracts are sometimes the root of conflicts. We negotiate, draft and review agreements between owners, builders, design professionals and other parties to ensure that the obligations are clear and the remedies are spelled out. A properly written contract is cost-effective for all.
