COVID - 19

In response to the CDC guidelines and local government orders, The Mussalli Law Firm has implemented changes to our existing in-office work schedules and staffing protocols for the health, safety and welfare of our valued team members and clients and to do our part in stopping the spread of COVID-19. We remain committed to serving our clients’ needs, including as may be necessary on a time-sensitive basis. We are closely monitoring all pending litigation matters and keeping in frequent contact with court staff to ensure proper flow of cases and noting any scheduling changes. Although we have ceased all in-office client meetings, we have made appropriate technology adjustments to continue to meaningfully communicate remotely, but even those systems have proven to be overburdened at times, by the sheer volume of users. In the event you do not receive a timely reply to any communication, kindly email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) and include “URGENT” in the subject line and we will expedite any necessary action on our part.

We appreciate your patience while we work together to prudently manage the existing circumstances.

Practice Areas

Construction Law

Our clients tell us that construction and design are imperfect processes. Similarly, litigation of construction disputes or negotiating construction contracts are anything but perfect. Our clients are confident they know what to expect, as they actively assist in designing and building the case strategy.  We provide a broad spectrum of legal services in assisting construction managers, contractors, design professionals, inspectors, subcontractors and vendors in all phases of commercial and industrial construction projects as well as claims, disputes and litigation arising from such projects. Typical services include contract drafting and negotiation, negotiation of claims and representation in litigation or arbitration involving issues related to acceleration or compression of work; change orders; construction defects; coordination and synchronization of trades; CPM schedule and delay claims; engineering; liquidated and consequential damages; mitigation of damages; personal injury; project management; and termination or default. Our experience in this area ranges from navigating commonplace lien and payment issues encountered on light commercial jobs to cutting edge off-shore marine construction projects involving multiple disciplines and market pressures. Most importantly, we are keenly in tune with the far reaching impact which construction disputes may have on existing business operations, profits, projections and relationships and focus our initial efforts on attempting to keep projects on track and reconciling disputes before protracted litigation is warranted. Nonetheless, when litigation is the chosen route, whether we are representing a Plaintiff or Defendant, our strategy is built around working toward cost effective, yet favorable solutions that make sense.
