Overview

We understand construction.  We see projects through, from idea to EIR to opening and the thousand steps in-between.  We have the expertise to guide clients through every phase of construction and navigate the successful resolution of any disputes that may arise.

We represent owners, developers, general contractors, design professionals, and others in the construction industry.  We help them complete significant projects and minimize risk along the way.  We guide clients through the maze of regulatory approvals often necessary before a project can become a reality.  Our deep understanding of the insurance issues that can arise in the construction context, and particularly in construction defect litigation, differentiates our Firm from others that handle construction matters.
