Pursuing Legal Action For Construction Defects

At Karlin Associates, LLC, we offer decades of experience in a wide range of construction disputes throughout Illinois and nationwide.

From our office in Chicago, we have worked with multibillion-dollar development companies, real estate investment groups and business owners with multiple building locations and projects underway. This high caliber of experience gives our clients the quality of representation they would expect from a large litigation firm, but we offer it in a small-firm atmosphere.

Personal Service And An Honest Assessment Of Your Case

Here, you will be able to work directly with the attorney who represents you. We will take the time to inform you of your dispute resolution options. This may include arbitration, settlement negotiation or trial proceedings, dependent upon the nature of your case.

Our focus is always on doing what is right for our clients. That means providing a cost-efficient option for real estate owners, developers, investors, financial institutions, contractors, subcontractors and other key stakeholders in construction defect cases.

Types Of Construction Defects

One of the major issues in construction defects is the question of liability. With so many stakeholders involved in a construction project, each is going to try to thwart liability issues when something goes wrong. It is not always clear who is to blame for an issue.

We can help investigate and make a case that works in your favor when there are construction claims for defects like:

  • Leaking windows, flashing and installation defects
  • Roof slope, roof materials and installation defects
  • Moisture accumulation and mold issues caused by ventilation or drainage design/implementation
  • Soil settlement and compaction issues
  • Broken concrete
  • Broken/cracked foundation elements
  • Structural issues with framing and walls
  • Code violations for building structure, zoning, etc.

Resolution On Your Terms

We will never blindly drive you into a legal battle, nor will we back down when what you need is an aggressive approach. We will give you an honest assessment of your options, the likely outcome of your case, the expected cost (financial and otherwise) of litigation and the strategies available to fight for a favorable outcome.
