Experience and Commitment
Our clients include developers, general contractors, public entities, subcontractors, equipment suppliers and product manufacturers. During the last five years, our Construction Law Practice Group has represented over 300 clients in nearly every California forum involving a broad range of construction issues. Attorneys in our Construction Law Practice Group are experienced and prepared to confront the special challenges and nuances of the evolving economy and construction industry. Haight’s success does not come by accident; rather, it comes as a result of an intense dedication to client service and rigorously adhering to a code of best practices that have withstood the test of time. Our attorneys are industry leaders when it comes to litigation and innovation by using technology to drive down costs, increase productivity, achieve our client’s objectives and obtain results. As one example, Haight's attorneys have won the vast majority of their duty to defend motions (i.e., "Crawford motions") and have pioneered an approach that significantly reduces the time and paperwork associated with filing a complex motion against dozens of parties simultaneously. In another matter that went to trial, the case settled the day after our opening statement in which our developer client paid nothing in settlement and was reimbursed 100% of its attorneys’ fees and costs.
Haight knows that to represent an industry, you have to know the industry. Therefore, you’ll often find us speaking at seminars on construction topics, writing articles for publication, providing seminars to clients, and we are active members of many associations, such as the Legal Action Committee of the California Building Association, the Board of Directors of the American Law Firm Association, the Southern California Region of the American College of Trial Lawyers (ACTL) and the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA).
