Construction Law

Construction law is a central part of our legal practice. Our construction law experience exceeds 25 years and a multitude of situations. We understand the construction industry and the types of disputes that arise between owners, developers, contractors, subcontractors, builders, architects, engineers, consultants, and material suppliers.

Experienced Construction Lawyers

Our firm’s experience enables us to deliver high quality legal services within a very complicated realm. Successful construction law services require specific knowledge of construction and contract laws coupled with a full understanding of construction terminology and what goes on in construction. We have the experience, knowledge and understanding to serve clients working in any part of the construction industry or involved in the construction process.

As experienced construction dispute lawyers we can provide expert counsel for any legal matter, and do not require our clients to educate us on the roles and responsibilities of the parties working within the requirements of construction contracts.

Our experience as construction law lawyers enables us to efficiently manage the routine legal aspects of a construction contract. Filing mechanics and materialmens liens and preparing bond claims are just two of the services we offer to our clients in the construction industry. We also review contracts and advise clients accordingly. When necessary, we file arbitration demands and represent clients at both arbitration and mediation sessions.

Services for Contractors, Subs & Suppliers

We represent contractors, subcontractors and suppliers in any level of mediation, arbitration or litigation. Having represented bonding companies for many years we can represent both you and your surety in any legal action. This means that there is no need for the surety to retain a separate law firm thus saving you and the surety from the burden of extra attorney fees.
