International theater operator Ambassador Theatre Group (ATG) hired Mintz when construction and design defects at its historic Boston venue — the Emerson Colonial Theatre — delayed the world premiere of Moulin Rouge! The Musical.
After corrective work was completed on the building, the Mintz team swiftly initiated litigation and brought multiple contractors and design and insurance professionals into a multifaceted, phased mediation. We worked closely with ATG’s general counsel and experts to efficiently and nimbly press compelling engineering, economic, and legal arguments and deconstruct those made by opposing parties. Mintz drew on its decades of proven experience with the construction industry and prior relationships with opposing counsel from various firms, engaged a skilled construction mediator, and helped drive a prompt and orderly resolution and financial recovery.
Complex construction litigation that was on track to consume at least three years and require expensive additional discovery and court proceedings was settled in less than a year.
