From initial design through project completion, disputes and legal challenges often go hand in hand with the construction process.

Whether addressing construction defects, cost overruns, construction delays, safety issues, property damage, personal injury claims, insurance or indemnity issues, overcoming the challenges requires guidance from skilled construction attorneys.
