Marroquín, Marroquín S.C., focuses on representation of contractors, architect-engineers and owners in the prosecution and defense of construction claims (We do not represent sureties). We regularly represent our clients in complex cases involving a wide assortment of projects, including bridges, courthouses, hospitals, industrial process facilities, office buildings, roads, and power plants.

Our attorneys handle the full range of construction disputes, with particular experience and capability in delay, disruption and acceleration claims, default terminations, design changes and deficiencies, concealed conditions, structural failures, surety claims, and interpretation, reformation or rescission of contract terms, mistake or fraud. We have substantial expertise in all construction damages issues, including no damages for delay clauses, exclusion of consequential damages and limitations on total cost claims.

We also regularly draft and negotiate construction contracts for our clients. Our construction attorneys have excellent academic and real world credentials, and have litigated construction cases in virtually every forum in which construction disputes arise. We are routinely involved in matters of defective cost or pricing data, cost accounting standards, multiple award schedule contracts, lease disputes, audit rights and patent and technical data rights.

We represent our clients vigorously at every stage of proceedings, from initial claim through trial and appeal. Often, however, litigation is not in the client's best interest, and we frequently utilize mediation and other alternative dispute resolution mechanisms to settle cases favorably without necessity of trial.

Some of our attorneys participate constantly as lecturers in construction law seminars specially directed to Directors and/or General Managers promoted by well recognized institutions such as: a) The Guatemalan Chamber of Construction; and, b) National and foreign Universities.
