Litigation & Arbitration

Since 1999, Mr. Cotney has devoted his practice to construction law and in particular, construction litigation and arbitration. He routinely represents contractors, subcontractors, architects, engineers, suppliers, manufacturers, developers, and others in the construction industry. These disputes include claims involving claims of lien, payment and performance bonds, Miller Act bonds, prompt payment interest, negligent design, defective construction, equitable liens on undisbursed construction proceeds, equitable liens on property, construction defects, lien foreclosure, real property disputes, breach of warranty, breach of contract, unjust enrichment, disputes based on open accounts, tortious interference with business relationships, fraudulent misrepresentation, and defamation claims, among other things.

We have participated in dozens of commercial and construction arbitrations administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA), JAMS and private arbitrators.
