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.

NCMIC is a writer of medical malpractice coverage in all 50 states.  We demand the highest level of service from our defense counsel.  Firms that don't meet our expectations are dismissed without hesitation.  Smith Sovik has been providing legal services to NCMIC since 1995.  They are aggressive in defending our cases and responsive to the needs of our insureds and my claims staff.  Kevin Hulslander and Jim Lantier are as good or better than any attorneys we have in the country.
