We represent project owners, general contractors, subcontractors, engineers, architects, design professionals, suppliers, sureties, governmental entities and construction lenders.
The resolution of disputes may go beyond the courtroom to panels, mediation or arbitration where our attorneys have a depth of experienced in informal resolution proceedings.
In addition to their legal training, the attorneys in the Construction industry group hold technical degrees in Civil Engineering and/or have real world construction experience allowing them to give cost effective and practical solutions. Our technical knowledge enables us to communicate industry specific information to judges, juries and decision makers in meaningful and understandable ways.
