Our firm offers a wide range of services to clients regarding every aspect of the construction process. From the bidding, negotiating and drafting of agreements to the mediation, arbitration or litigation of construction disputes, our attorneys have valuable experience in representing clients at every stage of the projects they build. While early involvement in the bidding and negotiating phases and the drafting of documents can often provide disputes from arising, the complexity of the construction process often produces legitimate disputes that require resolution. We can provide insights and strategies to manage those disputes that negative impacts on the project and the client’s business are minimized. Also, our experience in the various forms of alternative dispute resolution can help minimize litigation costs and promote the efficient resolution of disputes. Where litigation becomes unavoidable, our attorneys have the necessary experience and training to maximize the opportunity for a successful result.
