No construction project is perfect, and every project—large or small—can present significant risk. In today’s economy more than ever, it is imperative to seek out legal advice before, during, and after any construction project, but especially when a dispute is brewing.
Prudent businesses seek counsel from construction lawyers long before a site is acquired or ground is broken, and the lawyer’s involvement may last until well after the moving trucks have pulled away. Construction law is far-reaching, encompassing a host of interrelated disciplines where advice may be necessary, including real estate development, drafting contracts for design and construction, and engaging in project-related dispute resolution and litigation.
