Surety & Fidelity Law

Our attorneys have over thirty years of experience representing surety companies, owners, developers and contractors in surety and construction bond-related disputes.  We prosecute claims on behalf of sureties, obligees and contractors.  In addition, we regularly advise and represent clients regarding commercial surety and fidelity claims and handle, negotiate and litigate claims made under financial institution bonds, commercial blanket bonds, crime policies and other bond products.

Our lawyers represent issuers of contract and various other surety bonds, together with financial institution bonds, throughout the United States.  The firm has extensive experience in arranging for completion of bonded projects, negotiating with banks, contractors and governmental agencies, and handling the various types of litigation that arise out of such matters.  We draft and negotiate bond forms and endorsements, handle all aspects of claims from investigation through litigation and appeal and perform default analyses and related negotiations.

The firm's surety practice is enhanced by its extensive construction, bankruptcy and litigation experience.  Whether negotiating a fair and equitable arrangement to move a construction project forward in a timely fashion or litigating a complex fidelity loss, the firm tailors its work in fidelity and surety matters to the client's specific needs, requirements and goals.
