Herrick's construction litigators are tenacious advocates, with an insider's perspective on the construction and development process.

Our clients include a wide range of developers, owners, contractors, design professionals and insurance companies, whom we represent in litigating and arbitrating the full range of claims that can arise during and after construction.
