The construction practice group at Silverman Shin & Byrne has represented real estate developers, owners, construction managers, contractors and subcontractors as well as construction professionals, including architects and engineers. We also directly represent and advise insurance carriers in all manner of construction accident claims, including claims under the New York Labor Law and construction defects litigation. Along with providing the efficient defense with respect to the liability and damages, we are adept at analyzing and enforcing the contractual relationships between parties in order to extricate our clients from litigated claims at the earliest possible opportunity.
Our construction litigation group is comprised of dedicated attorneys assigned to various carriers and insureds to maximize our responsiveness and in-firm knowledge about our client’s particular needs.
We also are often called upon by developers, owners, contractors and insurance carriers to assist them in drafting construction-related agreements, indemnification agreements, waiver of subrogation provisions and insurance endorsements to better protect them in future disputes.
