No matter whether you are an owner, contractor, subcontractor, supplier, design professional, the construction industry is fraught with risk. Foresight, planning and risk management can make all the difference.
The attorneys in Heyl Royster's Construction Practice have represented construction companies, building and road contractors/subcontractors, project management firms, owners, developers, engineers, and architects in a wide range of construction-related disputes and transactional matters – many of which involve the intricacies of construction-specific laws and regulation.
Our attorneys have defended suits involving catastrophic, personal injury, and wrongful death arising out of construction site accidents due to mechanical failures, crane collapses, scaffolding failures, and the innumerable other matters in which injuries or alleged injuries can occur on a construction site. Our litigation experience also includes construction and design defect cases, construction delay-related claims, and contract disputes.
Our Construction Practice team understands the inner workings of major building projects and advises clients on issues of liability, risk management, insurance coverage and risk-shifting in construction contracts, and on the duties and obligations that arise out of contractual relationships. We have represented construction clients and property owners in contract negotiations, procurement and bidding requirements, and performance and payment matters – including mechanics liens and bond claims.
Our Construction Practice attorneys offer experienced counsel in preparing and planning a construction project, valuable advice during construction, and vigorous dispute resolution services before, during or after a project is completed.
