Our Construction Law Group is recognized as a local leader in the industry. Its primary task is to build the project, not to litigate.
The group comprises of talented attorneys who are highly respected by professional groups and publications and are active members and participants in many of the most prominent industry-related associations.
Representing a wide range of clients, private and governmental owners, contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, and design professionals—attorneys regularly negotiate, draft and review contracts; work with clients on estimating and bidding issues; and advise them on the American Institute of Architects (AIA) documents as well as the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) Consensus Docs.
Thoroughly experienced with the design, development, and construction process, the Construction Law attorneys understand the technical issues which often arise and actively work with clients on preemptive legal maintenance and loss prevention activities to prevent future legal issues and conflicts. When litigation cannot be avoided, our attorneys are prepared to represent clients in federal and state courts, as well as before administrative boards, throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. With an eye always on a client’s best interests, they may recommend alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation and arbitration when it makes economic sense to do so.
The construction industry is constantly changing in response to market and technological forces. Construction law evolves in an ever-broadening range of subject areas. When the need arises, our attorneys interact seamlessly with other practice areas in the firm, such as labor and employment law, corporate and business, succession planning and creditor and debtor (bankruptcy), so that our clients may achieve their goals as expeditiously as possible.
