BLF attorneys, including Lisa A. Barton, advised and represented the University in a dispute with a window contractor, based on defects in leaded glass replacement windows installed in historic campus buildings.
BLF worked with the University’s expert to develop a remediation program that would preserve evidence, provide access to opposing parties and their experts, and avoid spoliation claims, while allowing the repairs to be completed timely.
When the window contractor sued the University for unpaid retainage, BLF asserted counterclaims for breach of contract and breach of warranty. Eventually, the window manufacturer, the architect, and the inventor of the replacement leaded glass glazing units were added to the litigation.
After discovery, the litigation was amicably resolved.
