Contractors, Architects and Design Professionals are faced with unique and significant risks in the pursuit of their profession. Our construction group helps these client address development concerns on a regular basis. We understand construction practices and standards. Our attorneys have worked on small and large scale projects with industry professionals in an effort to accomplish client objectives, minimize risk and limit exposure among all participants involved in a construction project. As a licensed contractor and active participant in the development field our office has a unique view of the construction industry.
Our construction practice group advises clients from project conception, funding, site development, completion and beyond. We offer insights about transaction structures and the selection of appropriate project methodologies. We have negotiated, prepared and implemented joint development agreements, structured financing documents and build-out contracts on countless projects. Our role facilitates client objectives working to achieve goals that benefit all parties. We have counseled construction and design professionals with contract compliance including change orders, delays, payment procedures, errors, omissions, defects, bonding, licensing, regulations, insurance, liens, warranty claims and a host of other issues.
Our clients benefit from our ability to scale our services to fit the client’s objectives:
Transactional strength. Our firm staffs projects accordingly to minimize costs and maximize client return distinguishing ourselves from our competition, by budgeting in advance with a client to offer practical, no nonsense value-added advice.
Fast, efficient and tailored results. The construction market is driven by time and budget sensitivities requiring an inherent fidelity with construction activities that many firms lack. Our ability to quickly gain an understanding of the unique aspects of each transaction allows us to produce timely, cost-effective results.Dispute resolution & avoidance. A primary goal for our construction group is to limit uncertainty, surprises and disputes concerning construction projects. Construction projects are often plagued with problems of interpretation. When these interpretive issues occur we strive to resolve disputes informally so minimal project impact takes place. In the event resolutions cannot be reached we stand prepared to institute formal litigation or arbitration proceedings to put our clients position before the court.
