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.

We hired SSKS to defend our insured in a multi claimant incident. We picked the right firm! The case was appropriately managed and ultimately resolved at mediation. The defense was calculated, strategic and appropriate. It was clear that our attorney Kevin Hulslander knew his case and had the credibility and respect of the plaintiff attorneys involved as well as the mediator.
