Subcontractor Defense

We successfully defended our client in complex construction litigation arising from the construction of a large hotel in downtown Columbus. Our client was a masonry contractor who was brought into the arbitration, along with ten other subcontractors, by the general contractor defending a claim by the hotel owner for approximately $7 million for numerous construction defects and water intrusion issues at the hotel.

After almost two years of litigation, we reached a very favorable settlement agreement with the general contractor. The settlement secured the client’s dismissal from the action with a full release of all claims by the general contractor for a nominal amount. Moreover, we obtained insurance coverage for the settlement.
