Construction Overview

Some descriptionWe pride ourselves in our depth of experience in construction law and have one of the largest construction law groups in the Rocky Mountain region. We assist our clients at the outset of a project to assist in drafting, reviewing, and negotiating design and construction contracts to give our clients an advantage and to minimize the likelihood that claims and disputes will later arise—saving our clients both money and time. We represent owners and developers of construction projects, as well as prime contractors, trade and specialty contractors, suppliers and surety companies. We are experienced with all types of project delivery arrangements, including design-bid-build, design-build/EPC, construction management at-risk, and bridging arrangements. Our attorneys have experience with claims avoidance strategies, mid project claims, the development of negotiation positions, litigation, and arbitration. We work on a wide range of projects all over the country from residential construction defect matters to complex commercial contract disputes. We have has worked on legal construction issues for power plants, wastewater treatment plants, commercial and residential buildings, manufacturing and processing plants, dams, highways, hospitals, mines, hotels, institutional structures, environmental remediation and other projects. We also handle bid protest matters before local, state and federal authorities. We also are often called upon during the course of a project to assist as issues arise so that claims can be avoided if possible. When claims, disputes, litigation, mediation, or arbitration proceedings do arise, we routinely handle those as well. Many of our attorneys are trained and experienced as arbitrators and mediators of complex construction disputes. Our experience, and the insight we have gained, in presenting, defending, negotiating, arbitrating, mediating, and litigating complex construction disputes helps us to better anticipate and avoid the problems that can arise on a construction project, and allows us to better serve our clients who call upon us for front-end contract preparation services.
