When it comes to disputes over public works projects, over the years, Hunt Ortmann’s attorneys have handled every imaginable claim. We have successfully defended and prosecuted countless claims on behalf of public entities, and have the breadth of experience necessary to quickly analyze complicated projects involving multiple parties and numerous claims, and to effectively prepare and execute a litigation plan that will resolve our clients’ disputes efficiently.
Hunt Ortmann’s attorneys understand that public works projects have become even more competitive as more and new contractors are looking to enter this arena – and not all of them are up to the challenge. Debarment proceedings are serious business and aim to remove the truly unqualified from the ever-growing pool of bidders on public works. Because of the serious nature of the proceedings and the increased competition for obtaining pre-approval or pre-qualification for bidding on public works, contractors are more aggressive about fighting debarment proceedings. Hunt Ortmann counsels public entities throughout the entire debarment proceedings to ensure that all contractors are provided a fair and balanced hearing while protecting the public agencies from unqualified and untrustworthy contractors.
