The firm is nationally recognized for our experience in construction and public contracts law. Our attorneys are leaders in dealing with complex construction matters throughout the United States and overseas. Through our exclusive focus on construction-related issues, the group has a vast amount of experience in virtually every type of construction project, including wastewater treatment plants, airports, tunnels, prisons, hospitals, office buildings, sports arenas, schools, hotels and resorts, power plants, and industrial facilities.
Our representation spans all segments of the construction industry from owners, public and private, to general contractors, real estate developers, design and engineering firms, contractors and sureties. We have counseled multinational and Fortune 500 corporations and trade associations representing billion dollar industries, as well as smaller local and regional clients. Our attorneys routinely appear in courts throughout the United States.
We also know how to prevent and resolve disputes. Dispute prevention and early resolution of unavoidable conflicts are cornerstones of our practice. We have years of experience working directly with key project personnel to avoid disputes and effectively and efficiently resolve on a "real-time" basis those disputes which cannot be avoided. We regularly represent clients in mediations and arbitrations, and our lawyers are well experienced in other forms of alternative dispute resolution. Many of our construction lawyers are certified to act as arbitrators and mediators in various state and federal forums, as well as before the American Arbitration Association.
We advise clients on a full range of construction law issues, including planning, permitting, financing, environmental compliance, negotiating, contract review and drafting, dispute avoidance and resolution, and litigation. We also educate our clients on the benefits of involving our attorneys in the early stages of a project in order to minimize the risk and exposure to claims and disputes, thereby helping to complete the project within time and budgetary contractions.
