Contractor/developer prevails in arbitration following dispute with electrical subcontractor

A high-profile commercial real estate developer was involved in the construction of a $122 million development project, which involved 800,000 square feet of mixed-use space in Tennessee. The contractor on the project filed a $5 million pricing and change order construction dispute against the developer following project completion, in addition to a mechanics' and materialman's lien.

Waller represented the developer through a full-week arbitration in which we successfully defended the client and greatly reduced the amount it had to pay the subcontractor.
