Construction is a business, but successfully negotiating the industry's unique legal issues requires far more than an average business lawyer is able to provide. Our attorneys have the experience, knowledge and talent to represent construction companies, developers, contractors, and financing companies in all aspects of the construction and development process. And that's not just our opinion. We regularly work with some of the region's most prominent architects, engineers, and builders on construction matters.

Making sure you have the best legal advice becomes even more important when you consider that construction cases often have far-reaching consequences; they can even impact a company's future ability to do business.

Our extensive construction industry experience and skill can be exceptionally valuable in these areas:

  • Negotiation of construction contracts and terms
  • Financing (including public financing and bonding)
  • Right-to-build issues
    • zoning
    • land use
    • special permitting
    • interaction with municipal officials
  • Labor issues
    • project labor agreements
    • OSHA
    • prevailing wage
    • labor relations/collective bargaining
  • Liens (including mechanics' liens)
  • Environmental compliance
  • Equipment financing
  • Litigation
