We provide guidance from organization, financing, and project delivery models to drafting upfront contract documents, through the course of design and construction administration. By focusing on the finer details early in a project we are able to minimize problems that may arise later. Our attorneys are well experienced with construction-industry specific regulations and documents, having provided counsel and guidance for matters involving OSHA, ANSI, local, state, and federal regulations, AIA, EJCDC, OFCC, and ODOT form contracts.
When disputes do arise, we advise clients on cost-effective and strategic solutions. We counsel clients through pre-suit loss prevention and negotiation, dispute resolution and, when necessary, represent clients in mediation, arbitration, trial, and appeals. We have assisted construction companies, contractors, and design professionals in the handling of claims and litigation involving schedule delays, acceleration clauses, payment disputes, suspension of services, contract termination, change orders, defective workmanship, indemnity disputes, and insurance coverage and surety matters, whether defending or in the pursuit of claims. We strive to educate our clients as to the costs of litigation, liability exposure, and the likelihood of success in litigation to allow them to make informed decisions and effectively move towards a favorable resolution.
