Providing Construction-Related Services Delivered by Experienced Attorneys

Lawyers in our construction practice group have extensive construction law experience. We are able to provide practical, cost-effective representation and counseling to clients through every stage of project construction as well as project-related litigation or dispute resolution. We represent all stakeholders in construction projects, including private owners, public owners, contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, architects, engineers, and sureties.

We place special emphasis on helping clients manage and minimize the risks of construction and, thereby, avoid disputes. Good decisions during pre-construction set the stage for timely and successful projects. Before ground is broken, we assist clients in identifying risks attendant to their work or unique to their project and assist with making decisions targeted at avoiding and minimizing those risks.

Construction is a dynamic process, and effectively managing the process keeps the well-planned project on a successful course. During construction and through project close-out our lawyers concentrate on dispute avoidance by helping clients enforce their contract rights and take proactive measures to avoid, minimize and resolve disputes at the earliest possible stage. Sometimes disputes are unavoidable. When disputes persist and resolution cannot be achieved by proactive project initiatives, our lawyers represent clients in mediating, arbitrating and litigating disputes to resolution.
