Design Professional Representation
For more than fifty years Vandeveer Garzia has
represented design professionals including architects, engineers and
land surveyors, in all aspects of their work. We have been
actively involved in the preparation of construction contracts,
interpretation of construction contracts, dispute resolution, and
litigation. We have the knowledge necessary to assist the design
professional in preparing and interpreting the contract whether a
standard AIA or AGC contract or any hybrid. It is our job to assure
that our clients are fully protected in the event of a dispute,
default, termination, or litigation. We work closely with
our Insurance and Indemnity attorneys to make sure that the proper
language is included in the construction contract.
As skilled and experienced trial attorneys we are
not only able to assist our design professionals in litigation
avoidance but to represent them should they become a party to a
lawsuit. We have the resources and know how to defend the
design professional no matter what type of claim may be brought or who
may be involved in the litigation.
Our attorneys have tried lawsuits for design
professionals throughout the state of Michigan and in both state court
and federal court. As such we are well aware of the hazards of
litigation and are active in Alternative Dispute Resolution.
