Construction Law

Murchison & Cumming's highly regarded Construction Law Practice is known throughout California and Nevada for taking on complex construction defect disputes and major claims involving catastrophic construction injuries. Our practice delivers experience and efficiency with an appreciation of each client’s goals and liability exposure.

We are strong advocates for our clients – both in and out of the courtroom. As senior and mid-level attorneys, our experience includes both construction as well as non-construction cases in jurisdictions throughout California and Nevada.

We are dedicated to helping our clients minimize the expense of prolonged litigation. Through early assessment of the client’s potential indemnity, and skillful representation of their interests at the mediation stage, we have successfully obtained out-of-court settlements favorable to their interests.

When settlements cannot be reached, clients can count on us to mount a vigorous defense on their behalf. In numerous jury trials, our attorneys have obtained favorable verdicts, including defense verdicts in cases involving diverse construction related claims, including mold allegations in single- and multi-family residential dwellings and commercial buildings.
