Construction & Engineering

Construction and engineering law governs the relationships, responsibilities,
and disputes that arise among various parties
involved in these projects.

Construction Contracts

Central to construction and engineering law are the contracts that define the terms and conditions of a construction project. These contracts specify the roles, responsibilities, and obligations of the parties involved, including owners, contractors, subcontractors, architects, engineers, and suppliers.

Construction Liens

Construction liens, also known as mechanic’s liens or construction claims, allow contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers to seek payment for work or materials provided in case of non-payment by the property owner or general contractor. Laws vary by jurisdiction regarding lien filing procedures and deadlines.

Construction Defects

Construction defects can result in property damage or financial losses. Construction and engineering law addresses liability for defects and the legal remedies available to parties affected by them.

Delay and Disruption Claims

Construction projects often encounter delays and disruptions. The law addresses how these issues are managed, who bears responsibility for delays, and what compensation may be available.

International Construction Law

In cases of cross-border construction projects, international construction law deals with the legal complexities that arise due to different legal systems and international contracts.

Government Contracts

When construction projects involve government agencies, federal and state procurement and contracting laws come into play. These laws dictate the rules for bidding, contracting, and performance on government-funded projects.
