Construction and Labor Law Litigation

Smith Sovik regularly represents the State of New York as well as counties, villages, cities, private contractors, sureties, architects and engineers in construction-related litigation. We often defend owners and contractors in personal injury lawsuits stemming from construction site accidents involving alleged violations of §240, §241(6) and §200 of the New York State Labor Law. We understand the nuances of construction defect litigation, the lien law, delay-related claims, surety claims and personal injury lawsuits under the Labor Law – and we use this experience to deliver winning results.

The National Basketball Players’ Association has used the Smith, Sovik law firm to handle various matters over the years. In particular, we turn to Steve Williams, a partner with the firm, who is well known as an aggressive and thorough litigator. When we use the Smith, Sovik firm, we know we will get the best results possible, and we know we will be well informed as each matter unfolds.
