Construction Law

Construction Law pertains to any improvement or alteration to real estate (real property). This includes zoning, permits, development, demolition, construction and remodeling of real property. By definition, construction law is a broad category interrelated with many other aspects of the law including contract disputes, torts, labor and tax issues, and business organization.

Our construction law team will aggressively negotiate, mediate, and if necessary, litigate your case. We will thoroughly investigate your claims, consult with experts, visit the construction site, and ensure your needs are met through every phase of the construction process.
