Public and Private Construction Litigation

When a large west Michigan city built an expansion to its drinking water facility and was sued by the contractor for $3 million in damages for delay of the project, Jim led the team defending the claim and counter-sued for damages with respect to poor workmanship. Utilizing high-technology CAD drawing demonstrations, which were regarded as highly persuasive and effective, their work led to a favorable settlement for the city of $6.2 million. At that time, it was the largest settlement ever obtained for the city and represented nearly a $10 million swing in the amounts of money in dispute between the parties.
