Don’t wait for construction issues to occur as a result of a poorly written contract.

We can help bolster the safety of your jobsite and mitigate potential issues by providing you with any legal resources you may need regarding safety-related concerns, inspecting your site and identifying potential hazards, helping you prepare for the inspection process, and representing you in safety-related legal proceedings. 

Dispute Resolution Services

Last but certainly not least, we can tackle legal disputes before they escalate. The moment a conflict arises, we can help you consider your options for resolving the conflict, paying close attention to the contracts involved. We have represented contractors in both alternative dispute resolution (ADR) processes, such as mediation and arbitration, and litigation. We’ll weigh each of your options with respect to cost, formality, and ability to produce a favorable outcome before moving forward.
