With a client base that spans owners, lenders, developers, engineers, architects, suppliers, contractors and subcontractors, we offer insight into the shifting commercial and legal landscape.
Our construction attorneys have been serving clients across the U.S. with significant construction, design, development and real estate projects for decades. We recognize that construction projects often progress rapidly, and we are able to respond accordingly as issues develop. We can analyze and assess construction issues quickly and advise our clients as to their positions whether during contract preparation and negotiation, bidding issues, claims issues and all manners of dispute resolution.
Construction and Design Services
Our team of cross-functional attorneys assists clients in all phases of a construction project, including the preparation of bid documents, managing the procurement process, drafting and negotiating contracts, counseling clients on payment procedures and lien documents, and preparing and submitting closeout documents and deliverables.
Construction Disputes and Litigation
Maintaining an active role throughout the construction process, our lawyers work to eliminate and reduce disputes, and aggressively pursue our clients’ interests. Our team of construction litigators has wide-ranging experience, including trial and appellate experience in state and federal courts and before the Board of Contract Appeals and the Court of Claims; and have mediated and arbitrated matters in a variety of alternative dispute resolution forums. These include the prosecution and defense of claims for defective specifications and drawings, extra work, acceleration, delay, disruption, loss of efficiency, differing site conditions, obstruction of site access, defective work, suspension of work, termination, inadequate or negligent project management, and mechanic’s lien and bond claims.
