Construction claims represent a breakdown of communication between an Owner, whether public or private, and the Owner’s contractor or between the contractor and its subcontractors and/or suppliers. Occasionally, of course the Owner will directly hire a specialty subcontractor or a supplier.
The first step in maximizing the chances of resolving a construction claim is opening the channels of communication between the parties. Ms. Beisman accomplishes this first step for a client by entering a situation calmly, backed up by over 20 years of experience in construction claims. Face-to-face meetings, as well as telephone calls and emails, even long after a claim has arisen, sometimes uncover unknown motives, such as internal or external politics or extreme financial pressure. Ms. Beisman is experienced at encouraging people to communicate, using expert analysis when necessary, analyzing what such communication reveals and determining the best course of action for her client.
At times, however, communication between the parties is impossible and, when this occurs, Ms. Beisman aggressively represents her clients in asserting their rights or defending claims asserted against them. She has filed construction claim lawsuits and defended against them in New Mexico, California and Colorado. Issues in these lawsuits have ranged from convenience termination to seismic reconstruction to defective design. Clients have ranged from a sand and gravel supplier to a large public university to a large general contractor.
