Design Professional Errors and Omissions

Professionals in the design and construction of buildings, including architects, contractors, engineers, interior designers, and surveyors sometimes get involved in design errors and omissions.


For more than thirty-five years, Carney Badley Spellman attorneys have represented design professionals in matters involving allegations of design errors or omissions. We investigate claims and advise clients, and their insurers, regarding liability and the proper path to resolve claims.

We bring to our design professional clients broad experience in construction projects and issues. We are involved in everything from large public projects such as university buildings and schools, to infrastructure such as airports, ferry docks and highways, to mixed-use condominium/retail and single-family residences.

We assist with negotiating resolutions but are also ready to aggressively litigate on behalf of our clients in state or federal courts and other dispute resolution forums such as arbitration.

Our defense team also works with architects, engineers, and other design professionals, on risk management strategies to avoid claims or manage exposure if a claim is made. We work with clients to draft contracts, assess contractual liability and review insurance coverage relating to professional liability issues.
