You want to have protection
If you are in the construction business, you want to make sure your interests are protected before you commit your company to construct a new office, apartment project, factory or retail store. The future of your business depends on successfully planning, bidding, and constructing the project and resolving any disputes that arise. You need to determine your budget, your schedule, and your risks. Your contract manages your risks, when properly prepared. We help you understand and manage those risks.

Insurance matters for construction clients
Construction and insurance issues go hand in hand. Our lawyers assist owners, lenders, general contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers with a wide array of insurance issues ranging from drafting the insurance requirements in construction contracts on the front end to assisting with claims against insurers and litigating coverage cases should problems arise during or after construction. We have extensive experience in litigating coverage issues under all types of policies including builder's risk, commercial property, environmental, commercial general liability and professional liability.
Whether you need assistance with getting your insurance program in place or in dealing with insurance companies after a claim has been made, our lawyers can assist you with managing the multiple risks associated with construction projects.
