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. Our experience provides our clients with the high-quality 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 litigation and dispute resolution options. This may include arbitration, settlement negotiation or trial, dependent upon the nature of your case.

We provide clients with cost-efficient legal counsel. Our cases are properly staffed without excess work tacked on to heighten the bill. We handle cases for real estate owners, developers, investors, financial institutions, contractors, subcontractors and other key stakeholders in construction defect cases.

Types Of Construction Defects

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.

Our investigative and strategic skills can help to develop a case that works in your best interest 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.
