'No Damages for Delay Clauses' — Are They Always Enforceable?

Some construction contracts include clauses that are meant to limit the parties' right to recover delay damages. However, these "no damages for delay clauses" can sometimes be overridden, particularly if one party's active interference in the project resulted in delays.

Whatever your situation may be, we can explain your options and help you seek the compensation you need, either through out-of-court dispute resolution or construction litigation. We build strong cases, preparing each one for trial because that is the surest way to protect our clients' interests, even if the dispute is ultimately resolved outside of court.
