Construction Law & Litigation

When You Need Guidance from the Ground Up…
You Have Our Attention.

We represent general contractors, sub-contractors, architects, engineers, developers, owners, lenders, material suppliers and others in matters arising from construction projects. We assist clients during all phases of the construction process from contract bidding, supply-chain and field construction operations and claims documentation, to project close-out. When disputes arise, we are there to help resolve contentious issues, and if necessary, to develop, present and defend construction claims, as well as those for complex contractual and extra-contractual delay, productivity, and efficiency entitlements.
