Reager & Adler provides legal representation to contractors, subcontractors, public and individual owners, developers, architects, engineers, and sureties. We represent clients on matters involving transportation facilities, airports, heavy and highway construction, convention centers, schools, libraries, manufacturing and warehouse facilities, hospitals, prisons, underground utilities, postal facilities, and private residences. Our solutions for dispute resolution claims begin with a thorough case analysis and determination of value to our client. Solutions and/or a determination of awarded compensation can involve arbitration/mediation and in cases where it is warranted, civil litigation.

Arbitration, Mediation, and Civil Litigation

Arbitration is a cost-effective alternative to litigation. A dispute is submitted to one or more impartial persons for a final and binding decision. Mediation is a negotiation process that guides parties to an agreeable settlement while preserving the business relationship. Reager & Adler arbitration and mediation lawyers, Ted Adler and Tom Williams have years of industry specific knowledge and experience.

Civil litigation occurs when a lawsuit is filed in either state or federal court in order to recover damages or vindicate a right. Reager & Adler always attempts to settle disputes before a lawsuit is filed. However, if a lawsuit is filed, Reager & Adler has the depth of experience necessary to successfully represent the interests of individuals, businesses, or nonprofit organizations. While most lawyers rarely try cases, Reager & Adler has represented clients before judges and juries in courts throughout the commonwealth. Whether you are the plaintiff or the defendant, we believe in the importance of having a skilled civil litigation lawyer in place to represent your interests. Our philosophy is to minimize the tactical sparring that too often accompanies this type of litigation and to proceed promptly and efficiently to a resolution based on merits.

Select a proven resource

Construction law claims are unique because they often involve complex issues of liability and damages. We explain these issues to the client and work to arrive at the net value of the claim. This is where our decades of experience count most. Our assessment of net value to the client drives our advice. We work to settle cases where possible and litigate when necessary. This approach, which focuses on value to the client, has consistently yielded positive outcomes as evidenced by the fact that our greatest source of new clients is referrals from existing clients.—Ted Adler
