From initial planning and design all the way through to completion, every construction project requires a systematic, precise series of steps before it can be deemed a success. Undertaking a construction project requires not only the requisite technical expertise, but also a thorough and practical knowledge of the financial, administrative and legislative regulations that shape the framework of the industry.
Our attorneys leverage a vast array of experience with a constantly-evolving knowledge of the challenges facing the construction industry to meet each client’s unique needs. Representing both public and private owners, as well as construction managers, general contractors, sub and specialty contractors, design professionals and suppliers, our attorneys are well-versed in dealing with the obstacles faced at all levels of construction projects. From handling an increasingly competitive bidding market to guiding the completion of public projects in a difficult economic climate, our experience in the industry allows us to provide a wide variety of clients with the insight they need.
As economic challenges, evolving legislation, environmental regulations and energy-efficiency issues continue to change the face of the construction industry, our attorneys use their collective experience and in-house resources to tailor an approach to meet each client’s goals. The diverse educational and technical backgrounds of our team members allow us to provide our clients with a competitive advantage, regardless of the size or scope of their project. We have guided clients through a wide variety of projects, ranging from hotels, office buildings, schools and large retail stores to power plants, parks, infrastructure, roadways and bridges, assisting at every step of the process from land acquisition to contract negotiations to project execution. Legal guidance for our clients is provided by attorneys focused on the construction industry who are constantly apprised of emerging and important legal issues impacting ongoing and future building projects, whether it be a green construction matter or prevailing wage compliance advice.
Throughout the process, we strive to handle our client’s disputes and concerns expeditiously to minimize the impact on the project. However, when the need arises, we’re able to utilize our collective experience and resources to guide clients through mediation, arbitration and litigation matters that run the gamut from contract disputes and delay claims to design errors and product defects.
In a deadline-driven industry, our attorneys work proactively with clients at each step to meet challenges and produce resolutions in an efficient, cost-effective manner.
