We have especially deep experience representing subcontractors and have defended roofers, plumbers, electricians, drywall installers, framers, concrete suppliers, graders, and many other trades.
We carefully analyze each case to determine whether settlement or alternative dispute resolution will help the client achieve their goals. Our attorneys have briefed and argued numerous appeals involving recurring and important construction defect issues such as the:
- interpretation and scope of indemnity agreements
- applicability of the economic loss rule
- recovery under breach of implied warranty theories
- whether certain construction practices constitute defects
In addition, Schneider & Onofry frequently gives presentations to construction and insurance industry groups and companies to keep them informed on important developments in construction defect litigation. An example is Jon Schneider's presentation, "Solutions to the Broken Construction Defect Litigation System: An Introduction to Arizona's Right to Repair Statute."
"The New Landscape of Contractors' Liability Insurance
