Bacara Resort

The owner of this five-star luxury resort situated on the shores of Santa Barbara filed for arbitration against the general contractor. Once this claim ballooned into nine separate lawsuits (consolidated via a case management order), the contractor called upon Amento Group for representation.

The dispute involved complex construction defect and insurance issues, requiring the participation of many subcontractors and their consultants. Our team coordinated the efforts of 12 forensic and construction experts and programmed the invasive investigation to bring about the $200 million settlement of the claim.
