Construction

In construction, multiple, complex details determine the outcome: Experienced talent to draft and review the plans. The ability to communicate complex technical information. Efficient and effective allocation and use of time and resources. And, of course, a strong, solid foundation is a must. In construction law, the same components must apply.

Leveraging more than 100 years of combined experience, we deliver valuable, efficient and focused counsel. We bring hands-on construction experience as well as mechanical and civil engineering backgrounds to our practice, focusing pragmatic counsel on each client’s business. We understand the most intricate and complex details, distilling them into meaningful language–be it tailored for a knowledgeable arbiter or a panel of jurors. Above all, we help to ensure that contracts provide the right foundation for business success before, during and after building is complete. In short, we avoid pitfalls and mitigate risks through services that include:

  • Contract drafting, review and negotiation
  • Litigation support
  • Mediation and arbitration
  • Liens and claims
  • Bid protests

Our clients benefit from education and advice about details that can save them time, money and heartache. We’ve helped clients establish contracts that are nearly as expedient as a handshake, ultimately protecting all parties, be they business owners, general contractors, or subcontractors.

In every engagement, our goal is to empower clients to focus on the components of their businesses that matter most to them. Sometimes that means providing a table of provisions to guide contract adherence. Or, it may mean simply offering clear expectations about the likely course of any given matter. Whatever the circumstances, our goal remains the same: to deliver a meaningful relationship with a business-minded approach focused on the best possible outcomes for our clients and their businesses.
