Frantz Ward has successfully defended construction surety bond and bad faith claims in Ohio and throughout the United States. Our in-depth understanding of the construction process itself allows us to craft and implement defense strategies that are extremely successful. Our deep and talented construction group is often called upon to untangle the most complex matters at critical junctures. We conduct claim analysis, assist in mitigating damages by identifying remaining scope, negotiating and drafting contracts to finish the work, security agreements, liquidating agreements and takeover agreements. Where warranted, we have successfully pursued claims against those responsible for the underlying loss, including design professionals, subcontractors and owners. We are also equipped to deal with bankrupt principals and the myriad of issues that may entail.
