Our firm was contacted by a church to represent them concerning an ongoing construction defect claim against its construction manager and various contractors. Litigation had already existed for approximately four years before our firm was retained. Over the period of one year, our firm was able to re-examine all issues, present new repair methodologies and eventually enter into a global settlement agreement with fifty different parties. The settlement of this case involves repairs being performed by the defense as well as significant cash contributions. The overall settlement value of this case was estimated at $6.5 Million.
This high-end DTC condominium community with ground level restaurants and shops pursued the developer for defects including flat roof failures, dangerous balcony conditions, failing concrete and asphalt flatwork as well as structural concerns in the subterranean parking garage. When settlement offers would not cover repairs to the extensive damages this community incurred, Hearn & Fleener took the case to trial where the jury awarded the association $6 million.
