Perspective gained from collaborating with professionals in the construction and real estate industries provides our practice with the best opportunity to understand the project, our clients’ goals, and assist in efficient resolution of disputes when circumstances require action. As advocates, we offer sound, practical judgment, but above all, seek to be our clients’ partner so that your goals and visions can be met efficiently. In addition to state and individual attorney rankings by Chambers USA, the firm is also nationally ranked in Construction Law and Construction Litigation by U.S. News and World Report's "Best Law Firms" 2019.
Members of our practice are passionate and knowledgeable about the construction industry. With backgrounds in construction engineering and architecture, our attorneys provide a unique perspective grounded in a holistic understanding of the industry.

We routinely draft tailored contracts for owners, contractors, architects, engineers, subcontractor, and suppliers and vendors.
Additionally, we assist our clients with their project management needs, evaluating issues arising during construction, such as insurance and extra work claims, design and construction modifications, and change orders.
