Real Estate and Construction Litigation

Utah has specific real property laws that govern real estate transactions and construction contracts. Business disputes involving these contracts can be complex and difficult to resolve. The impact on parties may involve not only the value of the property or service as outlined in the contract but losses that are more difficult to calculate – including those caused by delays in the project or possession of the property.

The firm’s lawyers have successfully represented buyers, sellers, brokers, developers, general contractors, sub-contractors, suppliers, and financial institutions in a broad range of disputes related to real estate and construction. The lawyers often enlist technical experts, accounting experts, and engineering experts to support their clients’ cases, which range in size from thousands of dollars to millions of dollars. In some cases, the attorneys are able to help clients work out agreeable settlements in pre-litigation negotiations. However, if the case proceeds to litigation, the lawyers are assertive advocates.
