Construction Law

Construction Law

Construction projects rest on a foundation of law. The law governs every stage of the process, from drafting contracts and project documentation through bonding and insurance. Whether the project is public or private, Allen & Gooch construction law professionals bring to bear a comprehensive grasp of the law that’s equaled only by their detailed knowledge of the industry.

Minimizing Risk

Our attorneys work closely with our clients—including owners, general contractors, subcontractors, materials suppliers, design professionals, and insurance companies—to ensure the project proceeds smoothly. We help them take proactive measures to avoid future disputes, minimize risk, and preserve valuable business relationships.

Experience is the key differentiator. Allen & Gooch attorneys can look at a provision in a contract and know how a court or arbitrator would rule on that provision and how it might be a benefit or detriment to their clients.

Resolving Disputes

But when claims arise, we stand ready to pursue them aggressively. Whether it’s a design deficiency, breach of contract, or payment dispute, the Allen & Gooch construction law team is equally comfortable pursuing resolution in court, through negotiation, or through such alternatives as mediation and commercial arbitration—whichever best meets the business objectives of their clients.

  • Construction Defects
