Hi, How Can We Help You?

Construction

Construction Contracts and Management

Our engineering- and finance-trained attorneys have extensive experience in helping coordinate all types of projects, from residential real estate to the construction of major commercial properties and industrial plants. Because construction projects can involve a multitude of contracts, meticulous diligence remains the keystone to completing a project in on time and on budget.

KDDK attorneys are familiar with standard construction documents such as the AIA and AGC, and modify these documents to meet the unique requirements of each client and project. When industry such standard documents are not appropriate, our construction team negotiates and drafts tailored contracts to meet client and project needs.

Residential Construction

KDDK attorneys are familiar with the entire gamut of residential development and construction, from foundation to roof, including:

  • Purchase and sale contracts, options and other land acquisition matters
  • Zoning, variances and land use planning
  • Planned unit developments and condominiums
  • Subdivision covenants and restrictions
  • Indiana New Home Warranty Act
  • Indiana Home Improvement Act
  • Indiana Right to Cure Act
  • Express and implied warranty law
  • Indiana Quality Assurance Builder Standards
  • Fixed-price, cost-plus and fee-based construction agreements

Construction Litigation

KDDK attorneys have decades of experience working directly with project managers to avoid disputes.  We work swiftly and cost-effectively to resolve unpreventable disputes that arise.  Our construction attorneys are experienced with arbitration, mediation and other dispute resolution procedures commonly used to solve issues such as construction delay, defective material and workmanship claims. Our constant underlying goal is to accomplish real time solutions, without litigation.

When litigation does become necessary or if mismanagement or unforeseen trouble threatens a construction project’s completion or financial feasibility, KDDK attorneys are well-versed at vigorously representing clients in the court system in construction defect, delay, disruption, inefficiency, and change order claims. We also have extensive experience enforcing contractors’ right to payment through mechanic’s liens and foreclosure lawsuits.
