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 lawyers have been serving clients across the U.S.  and U.K. 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 truly understand the challenges and complexities before advising our clients whether during bidding, contract preparation and negotiation, claims, origination and processing, and dispute resolution.

Construction and Design Services

Our team of cross-functional lawyers assists clients in all phases of a construction project, including the preparation of bid and tender documents; managing the procurement process; drafting and negotiating construction contracts; advising clients on payment procedures, preparing and/or addressing security documentation and lien documents; and during the construction phase we assist clients regarding corporate compliance, health and safety, preparing and submitting closeout documents and deliverables; and managing defect issues, warranties and third-party rights.

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 U.S. and U.K. courts, and before the Board of Contract Appeals, the Court of Claims, and in the U.K., the Technology and Construction Court. Our litigators 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, changes and variations, 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 security bond claims.
