When your construction project or established building experiences a structural or building envelope failure that cannot be remedied through the normal channels, you will need a team of experts by your side throughout the litigation process.

Occasionally, a construction failure must be mediated by the legal system. If you are faced with this unfortunate situation, we recommend retaining construction litigation support as quickly as possible in order to best protect your investments. Each situation is unique and should be carefully and methodically investigated by experts who are independent and objective.

LJB’s experienced construction professionals provide a strong, effective, and efficient approach to determining the cause and origin of structural damage or premature building envelope failure. Our ability to communicate the facts accurately and effectively with major insurance carriers, property owners, HOAs, school districts, municipalities and attorneys or their representatives enables us to assume the primary role in investigating damage, whether it results from man-made or natural events.

Our investigation process is informed by our in-depth understanding of each stage of building design, construction, and finishing. We provide conclusive, evidence-based answers to the complex questions that arise during the rigorous investigations that accompany litigation. LJB offers support throughout the intricate legal processes, often supporting our clients in court by offering both deposition testimony and expert witness testimony.
