​If Your Work Was Part of the Problem…

A developer hired a general contractor to construct four apartment complexes in Wisconsin. The general contractor and some of the subcontractors made a number of serious errors during the construction that caused significant water penetration and mold. Quarles & Brady, working with one of its construction experts, worked quickly to identify the defects, the scope of repairs, and total cost to repair. The general contractor, the subcontractors, and their insurers were joined in a lawsuit. Based upon our analysis of the law and the problems at issue, the defendants contributed their percentage of fault during mediation and our client received a seven-figure settlement to repair the buildings without the expense of a trial.
