Construction PracticeSimon, Peragine, Smith & Redfearn, LLP has a history of representation in the construction industry. Our clients include contractors, owners, sureties, design professionals, and their insurers. The firm has had the privilege of advising and litigating on behalf of clients who build hospitals, highways, industrial facilities, condominiums, hotels, parking garages, airports, casinos, and convention centers.

Often, representation begins at the time of contract negotiations and continues through post-completion claims. We customarily provide counsel in negotiating and drafting construction and design-build contracts. During the contract negotiation phase of a project, our principal goal is to protect our client’s interests and to help minimize any risk of liability during the construction process.

In the event litigation becomes unavoidable, our goal is to provide competent and cost-effective representation to resolve our client’s claims and potential liabilities in an expedited manner. Our firm has had the opportunity to represent clients in litigation involving a wide range of issues, including: bid disputes, construction defect claims, delay and disruption claims, acceleration and inefficiency claims, Eichlaey claims, design defect claims, liens and privileges, warranty claims, mold claims, federal procurement issues, EIFS claims, professional errors and omissions claims, wrongful termination claims, critical path scheduling issues, administrative licensing hearings, and minority and women business enterprise issues.

Led by H. Bruce Shreves, the firm’s construction practice group has been involved in many of the seminal construction law cases in Louisiana. Through active participation in local and national construction groups, our attorneys remain informed of current legal developments and trends affecting the construction industry. Our attorneys are frequent lecturers at local and national construction related seminars. Moreover, we have published numerous articles and publications relating to the construction industry, including the Louisiana Construction Law Handbook.
