For more than 40 years, Durkee & Hennessey has provided legal services to the construction industry. We represent general contractors, subcontractors, material and equipment suppliers, sureties, developers and owners in all aspects of the construction process. The attorneys at Durkee & Hennessey understand the construction business. Our clients benefit from experienced counsel who understand the issues quickly, apply their skills with a minimum learning curve, and bring added value in industry knowledge and contacts.
Our practice covers the entire construction process, from the negotiation and drafting of contract documents, dealing with problems and claims during construction, to the resolution of disputes through litigation, mediation and arbitration. We provide practical solutions to the myriad of problems that can arise in connection with a construction project, including payment issues, delays, defaults, surety claims and liens.
We have represented local and national clients on all types of private and public construction projects, large and small, including hospitals, schools, condominiums, apartments, light rail and single-family residences.
We are members of the Construction Industry Section of the Washington State Bar Association and our attorneys have been guest speakers for a number of professional organizations as well as the State Bar Association on matters relating to construction law and related legal issues.
