We know that in your business every hour of delay is expensive, and we are responsive in addressing your need for timely legal services.

Construction is a high-risk, high-reward enterprise, and our lawyers partner with our entrepreneurial-minded clients to solve problems, manage risks and structure contracts to achieve their strategic goals.

We support contractors and others in the building industry with review of contracts, counsel on risk management, and aggressive defense or pursuit of claims. Our experience allows us to staff matters with fewer but more knowledgeable lawyers who turn deliverables around quickly. Our clients include construction owners, developers, construction managers, general contractors, subcontractors, engineers, trade contractors, suppliers, developers, general contractors, subcontractors, vendors, engineers, architects and design-build professionals involved in every area of construction.

One of the strengths of our construction practice is its partnership with attorneys in our real estate, environmental and employment practices. As a result of our combined experience in construction and real estate, we take projects from inception to final construction, assisting in acquiring real estate, resolving environmental problems, obtaining land use permits, and negotiating bids, contracts and work site-related issues such as labor and employment disputes.

Our lawyers include the former general counsel of a major home building company, engineers, the former chair of the Construction Law Section of the Atlanta Bar Association and the team has experience in virtually every legal issue that emerges for contractors, developers, land owners and project financiers. We draw on our broad resources in legal areas that affect construction such as employment and corporate law, intellectual property, real estate, tax, environmental and finance—a scope of practices not available at most boutique construction firms. Our collaborative approach anticipates problems and allows for an efficient hand-off of matters and delivery of timely and budget-conscious services.

Our lawyers strive for excellence continuously. In 2017, we received the Construction Lawyers Society of America (CLSA) Law Firm Award. This award recognizes North American law firms for excellence in construction law.
