Ciulla & Donofrio LLP: Sophisticated Solutions to Complex Legal Problems
Construction costs have increased dramatically since 9/11 and Katrina. We understand how to draft documents in ways that minimize the risk to our clients. Because we are, first and foremost, a litigation firm, we understand and appreciate the risks our clients face.
However, even though we are a litigation firm, we recognize that aggressive litigation may not be the best business decision for resolving construction disputes. We have extensive experience with alternative dispute resolution proceedings, including arbitration, mediation, mini-trials and facilitated negotiations, and will utilize these processes when necessary.
