Radmacher's practice emphasizes resolving complex construction disputes through negotiation, mediation, and, when necessary, arbitration and litigation, on projects in California, nationwide, and internationally. She frequently addresses claims involving breach of contract, construction and design defects, liens, delays and impacts, construction defects, bonds and insurance issues (including among others, general liability, builder’s risk, professional liability and subcontractor default insurance), and represents many of the nation’s largest contractors and developers in the commercial, multifamily, and residential markets. She has substantial experience in building envelope, water infiltration and mold-related claims, having counseled clients with respect to hundreds of such matters. Radmacher has defended all types of cases including mass actions and class action claims, defending residential homebuilders, commercial contractors, and design professionals.
Nunn has represented owners, developers, design professionals, contractors and subcontractors on numerous and varied public and private projects. She counsels clients through every aspect from contracting to litigation, including: early assessment and minimization of liability exposure and risk; cost-effective dispute resolution; project counseling to work through claims and disputed change order requests; strategy development for crafting a winning defense or prosecution; negotiating payment on projects with distressed parties, funding or bankrupt entities; and litigating cases through resolution via mediation, arbitration, or trial. Construction projects at issue have included multiple-story parking structures; underground pipeline systems; luxury hotels, both ground-up and renovation projects; airport construction; concrete demolition, cutting and pouring for a utility company; resort construction and upgrades; geothermal power energy plants; Army barracks and associated campus; light-rail projects; community colleges; landscaping on public works; a large grocery-store chain's warehouse and distribution center; LAUSD renovations; micro-tunneling under a large river bed; and multiple residential developments (homes, condos and townhomes).
