Goldstein Hall’s Construction Law attorneys represent owners, developers, construction managers, general contractors, subcontractors and design professionals throughout the lifespan of the construction project.
Our Construction Law attorneys are experienced in drafting and negotiating all construction agreements ranging from Design Professional Agreements, Construction Management Agreements, General Contractor Agreements, Subcontractor Agreements and Vendor Agreements. Our agreements are individually tailored to the specific client’s needs based on the particular project. At Goldstein Hall we draft our contracts with an eye towards avoiding disputes later on in the project cycle, by spotting potential areas of disagreement during the contracting phase and negotiating an appropriate solution before the issue becomes a matter of litigation.
Goldstein Hall’s Construction Law attorneys are also experienced in dealing with adjacent/adjoining property owner disputes that arise during the course of the project, including underpinning agreements and access and protection license agreements. Dealing with these issues early in the construction process avoids costly project delays and stop work orders.
Our attorneys also work with the client during the construction phase to mitigate against claims by working hand in hand with clients to respond to issues that arise during the project, including, changes in scope, project delays, work stoppages, defective work claims and contract terminations.
Despite the best efforts to avoid litigation, claims are often a part of the construction process. Our Construction Law attorneys, working closely with our team of experienced litigators, are experienced in dealing with all aspects of construction litigation, including delay damages, extra work claims, change order disputes, non-payment and Mechanic’s & Construction Lien issues. We are also experienced in litigating design defect claims. Our Construction Law attorneys are experienced in all phases of litigation and trial. We also have extensive experience in guiding clients through mediation, arbitration and other forms of alternative dispute resolution systems.
