We have represented private owners, general contractors, construction managers, design professionals, subcontractors, and suppliers in construction projects that range from single family residences to commercial buildings with project costs of hundreds of millions of dollars.
We work with owners and contractors to clearly document the parties’ rights and responsibilities and to anticipate issues before they arise. Once the contracts are executed, we counsel our clients to eliminate disputes during and after construction, and help our clients identify cost-effective solutions to those disputes that are unavoidable.
We actively assist our clients in the following areas as they relate to construction projects:
Real estate, land use and zoning
Preparation and evaluation of bid documents
Contract negotiations and preparation of contracts between and among owners (public and private), general contractors, prime contractors, subcontractors, architects, engineers, construction managers and suppliers for varied project delivery methods
Payment claims, including mechanic’s liens and claims
Mediation services, as mediator or counsel for a party
Arbitration before AAA and independent arbitration panels
Litigation in state and federal courts involving jury and non-jury cases
