Construction Law

We represent owners, contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, and design professionals on a broad range of legal matters within the construction industry.  Advising clients in all phases of the construction process, our focus is to achieve cost-effective results for our client in both project delivery and dispute resolution.  We also counsel clients on licensing and other regulatory compliance issues.

In assisting clients with project delivery, we provide the following services:

  • Drafting and negotiating design and/or construction contracts for both public and private projects;
  • Identifying and managing risk through contract documents, insurance coverage, and appropriate surety bonds;
  • Helping preserve mechanic’s lien, stop payment notice, and payment bond rights; and
  • Providing advice during construction regarding change orders, extra work, delays, payment applications and retention, defective design or work, and contractor non-performance.

When disputes arise, we help clients achieve optimal results by:

  • Prosecuting and defending actions for breach of contract, indemnity, mechanic’s lien foreclosure, construction defect, and claims on stop payment notices and payment bonds;
  • Litigating claims through judgment at trial and arbitration; and
  • Settling claims through mediation and other alternative dispute resolution procedures.
