Construction Litigation

Crisham & Holman offers extensive experience with Colorado construction law for developers, contractors, suppliers, and owners.

Construction Litigation

In the construction industry, litigation has become almost an inherent part of doing business. Construction litigation can encompass a wide range of disputes, ranging from straightforward contract and payment disagreements to more complex and expert-intensive cases involving construction defects, delays, and performance claims.

At Crisham & Holman, we specialize in guiding you through the challenging legal terrain unique to Colorado construction law. In Colorado, the Colorado Construction Defect Action Reform Act (CDARA) plays a pivotal role in regulating construction-related disputes, particularly in cases of construction defects. Mechanic's liens, another crucial aspect of construction disputes and litigation, are a potent tool for contractors and subcontractors to secure payment for their work. We are well-versed in the Colorado statutes and procedures governing mechanic's liens, ensuring that your rights are protected and your financial interests are safeguarded.

Our team is dedicated to addressing your construction litigation needs, regardless of the complexity. Whether you're a contractor, subcontractor, property owner, or developer, we provide invaluable insights and support to ensure your rights are protected and disputes are resolved justly and efficiently.

With a deep connection to Colorado's construction community and a steadfast commitment to our clients, we are your trusted partner for all your construction litigation needs. Contact us today to address your construction-related legal challenges with confidence.
