In representing the interests of the construction industry, Schwab & Gasparini has experience in litigating a variety of claims, including construction delays, contract disputes, defects, management claims and most notably, New York State Labor Law matters.

The firm can defend against lawsuits brought by injured workers alleging violations of the New York State Labor Law and the Industrial Code. Our attorneys have also consulted contractors, big and small, on contractual agreements, indemnification matters and other insurance issues. Our attorneys do not simply focus on workplace accident claims, rather we have knowledge on key insurance and indemnification issues that frequently arise in New York injured construction worker lawsuits. This experience provides our clients with a solid framework to defend against complex claims.  In this field, our Firm has been retained by major insurance carriers and small contractors to assist in construction matters.  This involves not only personal injury lawsuits, but the business side of the industry as well, including contracts, legal advice and counseling and review of procedures.
