Construction Law

New York and New Jersey Litigation Attorneys

Experienced Attorneys for Plaintiffs and Defendants

When construction disputes occur between general contractors and sub-contractors, construction companies, property owners or other parties, it may seem difficult, expensive and time-consuming to resolve those disputes in a satisfactory manner.  While some of these disputes may be resolved through cooperation or other mediation methods, others will only be resolved through litigation or arbitration.


At Pierce & Kwok LLP, our attorneys utilize their experience in construction law to represent a wide range of clients in construction litigation in and around New York City. Our lawyers take pride in helping our clients obtain successful resolutions that are cost-effective and meet their needs. We understand that strong and swift enforcement will get you paid or protect you from paying too much.


In matters involving non-payment, our office employs a multifaceted approach, including breach of contract actions, Prompt Payment Act actions, mechanic’s lien foreclosure actions or a combination of all three, to make sure that you get paid. Often, construction litigation also involves a vast array of other disputes frequently encountered on the job site including claims over defective work, scope of works disputes and delay or acceleration claims.  Our construction lawyers are equipped to handle all aspects of construction litigation and regularly handle claims involving private commercial projects such as retail stores and restaurants; and residential developments, including cooperative and condominium construction. We know how construction projects work from contract negotiation through project delivery and every step in between, allowing us to develop a strategy to protect and enforce your rights as quickly and cost effectively as possible.
