Our commercial litigation attorneys, business lawyers, and legal professionals work collaboratively, sharing a common goal of getting the job done for our clients.

Construction Litigation

Construction projects always begin optimistically, with the hope that everything will run smoothly and be completed on time. However, sometimes disputes arise over payment or quality of work, especially when it involves larger projects with multiple contractors and vendors. 

Our commercial litigation team includes attorneys with extensive knowledge of construction law and common issues related to the industry. Whether you need a notice or lien to protect against non-payment or need to enforce contract terms to get paid, our team is there for you.

Our construction clients include:

  • Construction management firms
  • General contractors
  • Material suppliers
  • Owners
  • Prime contractors
  • Subcontractors

We recognize that sometimes litigation provides the only option for addressing a construction issue. If a dispute leads to a lawsuit, our civil litigation attorneys know how to build a solid case and fight tirelessly to protect your interests. We’ll gather the right team to represent your company, so you can focus on your building projects.

Proactive Commercial Litigation Strategies

Being sued, handling contract disputes, and dealing with other legal issues takes time and energy away from running your business. One way to avoid problems before they arise is to lay out and achieve strategic objectives that help protect your interests.

Our business attorneys help companies identify and manage risks before they become issues. Recognizing potential conflicts, minimizing costs and losses, improving existing procedures, and developing more efficient processes may help your business avoid commercial litigation altogether.

To assist clients with these matters, our lawyers dive deep to glean a thorough understanding of each individual business. We’re dedicated to educating companies and individuals on how to identify risks and potential legal issues in advance. We can also help with putting tools and systems in place after a dispute is settled to avoid future risks.

Why Choose Us?

Few professionals enjoy spending their time suing someone instead of resolving problems in a less costly, complex manner.  Our litigation attorneys are skilled negotiators who are well-versed in alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation and arbitration, which can help clients avoid expensive, time-consuming court battles. Although we strive to help you resolve business disputes with alternative methods, our commercial litigation attorneys also know their way around a courtroom.  When an issue can’t be settled out of court, our teams work to create effective legal strategies and achieve positive outcomes for our clients. We’re dedicated to building solid relationships and providing professional, personalized legal services you can trust. Whether you need assistance with commercial or business matters, family law issues, estate planning, criminal defense, or other legal services, our responsive teams always keep lines of communication open and put our clients first.
