Shepherd PLLC’s specialization in business and corporate law does not stop with its transactional work. One subsection of our firm is devoted to litigation and settlements within that emphasis. This group focuses primarily on commercial litigation, insurance and tort litigation, and professional practices issues. They serve construction professionals, developers, insurers, insureds, large corporations, businesses, contractors, subcontractors, and individuals. The group is experienced and successful serving clients in all manner of civil litigation in district and appellate courts. They brief and argue appeals and are accomplished in alternative dispute resolution, including mediation and arbitration. Our attorneys offer invaluable expertise in recognizing when settlement would be preferable to trial, or when the client would be better served by resolving a dispute in court. One thing our attorneys understand is that effective and thorough upfront communication with our clients with respect to the potential risks and benefits of litigation increases the chances of a successful outcome.
We have worked with all sectors of the development, design, construction, insurance and real estate industries. Our attorneys handle lawsuits for construction professionals; negotiate design and construction contracts; resolve disputes involving workmanship, delay and payment issues; analyze and assert coverage positions; and handle general liability claims with injuries and property damage.
We resolve disputes arising from all sizes of commercial, residential, and public projects. And we have developed special expertise defending multi-party design and construction defect lawsuits. While small, our team has all the resources necessary to handle and try complex, technical cases with significant alleged damages.
