Contractors, developers, lenders and other key players in the real estate and construction industry turn to our lawyers, one of whom is a registered architect, for guidance with a wide range of contractual, financing and litigation needs.
Almost every development is unique. Our lawyers prepare easements, development agreements, restrictive covenants, and construction-related agreements required by the particular circumstances of a development. We are seasoned in the preparation of exclusive use restrictions and shared use agreements, and we serve clients in every facet of large, complex development and construction projects across a variety of domestic and international jurisdictions.
We represent builders, property owners, product manufacturers and insurance companies in the commercial, industrial, institutional and residential (both multi-family and single family) construction industry.
With our Construction group, we provide assistance on all issues that arise in the construction process. Our experienced lawyers regularly advise clients on:
- Contract drafting and negotiation
- Payment, performance and site conditions claims
- Building products liability
- Bond claims
- Construction defect litigation
We also advise designers, property owners and contractors on legal issues related to green construction, including assisting them with applying for and obtaining sustainability incentives from federal, state and local governments.
We have experience with the LEED certification process, including helping government contractors with construction projects, as well as public-private construction.
