Burg Simpson Shareholder Mari Perczak Interviewed by Law Week Colorado Regarding $19.48 Million Construction Defects Award

Burg Simpson shareholder Mari Perczak, the co-leader of the firm’s Construction Defects Department, was recently interviewed by Law Week Colorado regarding a multi-million dollar arbitration award. The Burg Simpson team represented the homeowners at Beacon Point Townhomes in Aurora, Colorado in a case filed against Century Communities. After a 17 day arbitration, Ms. Perczak and her team secured the award for the residential community alleging construction defects and deficiencies by the builder.  The homeowners were awarded a total of $19.48 million; however, an increased final award is possible as a hearing on attorney’s fees and costs is scheduled for December of this year. Ms. Perczak said, “We think this is the largest arbitration award so far, in either a verdict or an award, in residential construction in the State of Colorado.”
