Practice/Industry Group Overview

Since the Firm was established in 1988, our attorneys have represented every potential party to a dispute on a construction project, including owners, developers, sureties, design professionals, contractors, subcontractors and suppliers. We have litigated, arbitrated and mediated cases from Maine to Florida and from New Jersey to Hawaii. Over the years, we have worked for our clients on virtually every type of construction project including: major office buildings, stadiums, hospitals, shopping centers, condominiums, government buildings, bridges, water treatment plants, petro-chemical plants, highways, airports, factories, and schools.

With our first hand knowledge of the construction industry, our attorneys are equipped to assess problems quickly and assist in the tactical and strategic decisions that can make the difference between a project wrought with problems and one that is successfully completed. We are involved in all phases of construction projects, and our attorneys work with our clients to answer day-to-day questions with respect to:

  • Contract negotiations and document preparation
  • Bid protests and bid withdrawals on public projects
  • Injunctions
  • Complex operational and financial issues that arise during a project
