A manufacturing company hired a firm to design a new campus headquarters including an office building, distribution center and museum budgeted to cost $32 million. The design firm failed to consider the economic consequences of its aesthetic choices and ran afoul of the city’s design constraints, causing anticipated construction costs to balloon to more than $57 million.


We represented the manufacturing company in extensive negotiations to successfully resolve delay, defect and payment disputes with the general contractor associated with the design issues, as well as the contractor’s performance.
