Construction Law

Construction law is a highly complex area of real estate law.

Our firm represents construction owners, contractors, subcontractors, sureties, material suppliers, design professionals and qualifying agents and offer significant experience in:

  • Construction regulations
  • Contract Risk Assessment
  • Contract Review
  • Litigation & Arbitration
  • Negligence Claims
  • Cost Overrun Disputes
  • State and city permit issues
  • Contract negotiations and disputes
  • Architect & Engineer Design Liability
  • Construction defects / construction defaults & terminations
  • Construction liens
  • Residential or commercial developments
  • Contract, subcontract, and other form drafting and review
  • Delay claims and defense, construction mediation

We assist clients at the outset of a project to assist in drafting, reviewing, and negotiating design, construction, and consulting contracts and to assist in taking affirmative steps at the front-end of a project, which are designed to minimize the likelihood that claims and disputes will arise later.


The avoidance of unnecessary claims and lengthy disputes is essential to the protection of every project’s bottom line and, therefore, a priority for those in the construction industry. Expertise in the construction industry is necessary to assist construction project participants in recognizing, avoiding, and resolving disputes arising out of the project so that the project participants can focus on what they do best. Our goal is to help clients make informed decisions that ultimately protect their business and individual capital.
