Our team defended a Chicago-based construction company against a subcontractor that sought to collect millions of dollars in delay and inefficiency damages and requested change orders. The claims resulted from the subcontractor’s work on a project to expand and renovate a Wisconsin hospital.


The expert called by our team credibly explained how a proper delay impact is recorded and measured, showing the court that the subcontractor had the ability to present claims in real time if the facts and circumstances warranted. The court agreed with virtually every argument we presented, flatly rejecting the subcontractor’s claims for delay and inefficiency while awarding an insignificant amount for a few outstanding change orders.
