Navigating construction and real estate disputes requires attention to detail, an in-depth knowledge of the law, industry experience, and strong advocacy. Maslon’s Construction & Real Estate Litigation Group uses these tools in every project it handles to provide excellent representation for its clients.
Our construction practice is nationally recognized and known for litigating high-stakes construction disputes in Minnesota and throughout the country—including the I-35W Bridge collapse—and Maslon is consistently ranked as a Leading Minnesota Firm for Construction in Chambers USA. We not only represent owners, developers, engineers, general contractors, suppliers, and lenders in litigation, but also advise our construction clients in all phases of a construction project, including contract negotiation and drafting, project administration, payment and close-out, defective construction issues, mechanic's lien claims, warranty work, and unique construction insurance products. We also have a burgeoning insurance coverage litigation practice. Our clients benefit from our heavy involvement in the construction industry's top legal trade groups, including the American College of Construction Lawyers, the Associated General Contractors of America, and the American Bar Association’s Forum on the Construction Industry.
Our real estate litigation experience is equally robust and diverse. We represent clients in land use matters, condemnation proceedings, property tax appeals, mortgage foreclosures, receivership actions, homeowner association disputes, quiet title actions, easement disputes, lease litigation, and disputes involving development agreements, partnership agreements, and property management agreements. In this capacity, we frequently appear in state and federal courts, the Minnesota Tax Court, and before court-appointed condemnation commissioners.
In every construction and real estate matter, we partner with our clients to solve their problem and design a solution that best achieves their goals.
