Defended the owner and general contractor from construction-related litigation arising from the construction of a $101-million luxury apartment complex in Baton Rouge.
Represented the owner and general contractor in construction-related litigation arising from the construction of a $101-million luxury apartment complex near the campus of Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge. We defended multiple suits that included claims for additional payment by subcontractors, lien claims, warranty claims, breach of contract, FLSA claims by workers, and defective construction claims. Furthermore, while construction was underway, we successfully prevented property owners immediately adjacent to the project from enjoining construction during the summer of 2015. The plaintiffs claimed, among other things, that construction should be immediately halted due to contractors’ alleged excessive vibrations and noise in violation with local ordinances. Facing the deadline for students to move for the fall semester, we were not only able to prevent the injunction, but we were able to successfully negotiate an accelerated schedule allowing crews to work around the clock, while maintaining acceptable noise levels.
