Formidable Opponents Resolving Construction Claims

Construction litigation involves specialized issues that require attorneys who know the business. Our Construction Litigation team has tremendous experience in resolving the wide spectrum of claims that arise before, during, and following construction projects. Subcontractors, owners, general contractors, architects, engineers, vendors, suppliers, sureties, and insurers trust our attorneys with their construction matters.

We handle a wide variety of construction-related matters, including:

  • Construction Litigation
  • Construction Mediation
  • Contract Negotiation
  • Contract Preparation

Our team has tried numerous construction cases and has obtained favorable and cost-effective results using mediation, private arbitration, AAA arbitration, and oftentimes a full trial on the merits.

Construction Insurance Coverage Issues

In conjunction with litigating construction claims, our Construction Litigation team understands and, when necessary, litigates the insurance-coverage issues that arise in the context of construction claims, including whether certain claims are covered under a policyholder’s general liability, professional, and/or errors & omissions policy. Our team’s experience with both the litigation and coverage issues that arise in the construction context gives them the upper hand in handling construction disputes.

Copeland Cook carries a strong reputation for excellence throughout Mississippi, making our team a formidable opponent for their adversaries.

Informed Construction Law Counseling

Beyond litigation, our highly experienced lawyers have been retained by local companies and organizations to write, speak, and comment on construction and construction litigation issues. We keep informed on changes in the law, giving us an advantage in counseling clients as well as in advancing their interests in litigation.
