MADISON H. BRACKELMANNS practices in the area of construction law. Ms. Brackelmanns has extensive experience drafting and negotiating construction agreements, architect and engineer agreements, and trade contracts/subcontracts. She is well-versed in the unique considerations presented by various project delivery methodologies such as traditional design/bid/build, design/build, CM at risk and adviser, and complex hybrid systems, whether performed on a cost plus or stipulated sum basis. During her tenure at the Firm, Ms. Brackelmanns has advised clients on the design and construction of several billion dollars in new and renovation construction.

Ms. Brackelmanns also counsels owners, developers, and contractors in strategies to minimize, manage, and resolve potential construction disputes and other business matters from the proposal stage through project closeout. Ms. Brackelmanns is a trusted resource to her clients, working closely with them to evaluate risk at the outset of a new project and providing continued advisement in real-time regarding issues that arise during construction, including construction defect claims, design errors and omissions claims, delay and disruption claims, change order and extra work claims, mechanic’s liens, default/termination and other related matters.

As a complement to her transactional practice, Ms. Brackelmanns also represents and advises her clients with respect to ADR proceedings and litigation matters, including mediation, arbitration, and litigation in state and federal courts in New York and New Jersey.
