Cotney represents architects, engineers, surveyors, geotechnical professionals, and environmental consultants in a variety of matters.  We can assist with contract development and drafting, project oversight, peer review, and project audits.  We have successfully drafted and enforced limitation of liability clauses in design professional contracts.  Unlike most law firms and consultancies, many of our lawyers and consultants can read plans because of their construction backgrounds.  We work with and are familiar with CAD drawings and BIM modeling.  

We routinely represent design professionals in litigation and arbitration involving alleged professional negligence claims related to design defects and have experience handling this defense in multi-million-dollar, multi-party litigation.  We also pursue collection matters on behalf of design professionals.
