Owner issues can vary on construction projects. Owners of larger, more complex commercial and residential construction projects have specific considerations which necessitate certain legal protections and guidance separate and apart from smaller residential homeowners.
Homeowner’s claims are often governed by the Louisiana New Home Warranty Act. Our construction lawyers have a significant amount of legal training and background in prosecuting New Home Warranty Act claims on behalf of homeowners, as well as defending claims on behalf of general contractors.
Our legal team has written about and taught seminars explaining and detailing the Louisiana New Home Warranty Act, including teaching Real Estate Commission-approved continuing education courses. This experience in litigation and in writing and teaching continuing education courses has allowed our construction lawyers to understand the legal implications and considerations that impact both the homeowner and the contractor involved in new construction renovation.
Our attorneys are also involved in making and developing new law in this arena, as the New Home Warranty Act is relatively young. There is still a significant amount of jurisprudence and legal interpretation that is left to develop under the New Home Warranty Act’s statutory scheme, and our construction lawyers are proud to be a part of that litigation.
Our construction lawyers are experienced and ready to assist owners and construction companies in ensuring you effectively navigate the Louisiana New Home Warranty Act. Our construction lawyers have significant experience representing owners in commercial and residential construction claims and defending contractors for claims filed by owners.Contact our office in New Orleans to discuss your claim with a highly-rated and experienced lawyer.
