Construction Matters including Construction Defects
Our attorneys are some of the most experienced and well-known advocates in the construction industry. We know the industry and have decades of work with general contractors, architects, engineers, and other trades. We also have extensive experience prosecuting construction defect claims on behalf of residential homeowners, commercial property owners, business owners, condominium associations and townhome associations.
Our attorneys have handled complex claims for defective construction, delay, and negligent design including building structural failures, water intrusion, stucco failure, building foundation and footing problems, condensation, leaking roofs, and improperly installed windows.
If you are a property owner and suspect your property has a construction defect it is imperative that you act quickly as Minnesota has a two-year statute of limitations on a construction defect claim that begins to run when the property owner knew or with reasonable diligence should have known about the damage to their property. If you believe you have a construction defect issue, please contact us for a no charge consultation.

We are also highly experienced in defending property owners whose property has been encumbered by a mechanic’s lien. Our firm focuses on Minnesota construction matters.
