Construction Law

The construction law attorneys at Arthur Chapman have over 30 years of experience representing contractors, suppliers, and construction professionals in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, North Dakota, and South Dakota. Our attorneys recognize that construction disputes can be expensive and time consuming. For this reason, we work to provide clients with cost-effective and practical advice using our breadth of experience, depth of knowledge, creative resolution strategies, and litigation risk-analysis techniques to guide our approach in all disputes.

We represent clients involved in a variety of construction disputes, both large and small, ranging from moisture intrusion in residential homes to large-scale commercial and condominium defects. Inevitably, these disputes will involve an insurance coverage analysis. Our attorneys have earned a reputation as that of highly regarded counsel specializing in the area of contractual risk transfer issues, including indemnifications, additional insured, and coverage analysis for first and third parties. We also provide construction industry professionals with counsel regarding complicated and technical legal issues to help them avoid litigation and liability exposure.

Our attorneys understand that arbitration or mediation is often the most cost-effective route to handling construction-related claims. However, we also have an impressive trial and appellate history. From the onset of a claim, we work with our clients to determine a desired result, be that mediation, arbitration, or trial. We then utilize our experience and creative resolution strategies to choose a route that most cost-effectively achieves that desired result.
