The attorneys at FormanWatkins regularly litigate construction claims and have obtained numerous judgments and favorable outcomes on behalf of property owners, builders, contractors, subcontractors, and material suppliers across the region. Recent cases have involved alleged construction defects resulting in significant property damage, work that allegedly resulted in both property and personal injury damage, premises-based injury alleged from installed equipment, and lien work on both property and mineral interests.
FormanWatkins served as general counsel to a national insulation and roofing manufacturer for over a decade and defended their building product defect claims throughout the country. We also represented a French turbine manufacturer in construction litigation and an international arbitration involving turbine construction at a lignite-fueled power plant in Mississippi. Our attorneys also have significant experience representing general contractors in complex construction defect cases, including a large number of claims involving condominiums in Florida and Alabama that were damaged by the wind and water of hurricanes. We have also represented contractors across the South in a variety of construction defect claims and contractors during construction of commercial buildings where neighboring landowners have alleged trespass through sediment and run-off water, and where our clients were faced with complaints for temporary restraining orders, preliminary and permanent injunctions and other damage claims. The FormanWatkins team has also represented contractors and subcontractors in construction lien litigation, and we regularly serve as a consultant on various issues facing the construction industry.
