We represented a municipal utility district against an engineering firm for its defective design of a flood control detention pond seeking damages of over $1 million. The detention pond suffered a major structural wall failure. As part of the representation, we assisted the client in developing a plan for the replacement of the entire detention pond and obtaining a new engineering firm. We obtained a settlement in excess of the engineering firm’s policy limits.
We have represented numerous other municipal utility districts in court proceedings and arbitrations concerning construct defects and delays, performance and payment bonds, engineering errors and omissions, and other disputes.
