The Richardson Firm represents clients in all stages of the construction process. These clients include general contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, developers, owners, architects, and engineers.
The Richardson Firm litigates disputes in state and federal courts, with mediators, and before arbitration panels. Our attorneys are zealous advocates and have the knowledge and experience to resolve disputes favorably. Where complex litigation is required, we have the capacity, resources, and technology to fully evaluate a problem and its potential solutions, to develop sound but flexible strategies, and to collect, analyze, and manage large amounts of information stored or maintained in various formats.
Our top priority, however, is avoiding costly litigation and instead engaging in alternative dispute resolution. Dispute resolution is the most expedient and least expensive approach for resolving claims.
