Construction Law

Page Content

Our Kennerly Montgomery construction attorneys have experience representing parties in numerous types of construction disputes and claims and in various forums for dispute resolution. We have represented public and private owners, lenders, contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, architects, and engineers in various matters involving delay claims, defect claims, mechanic's and materialmen's lien claims, design deficiencies, payment claims, bond claims, contract interpretation, environmental issues, contractor licensing issues, and other claims relating to construction and design.

We represent general contractors, subcontractors, architects, engineers, surveyors, construction managers, owners, sureties, and material and equipment suppliers. We work with clients to avoid disputes with prompt service and forthright analysis of facts and legal issues. In many cases, we can resolve a client's matter through direct negotiation or mediation. If necessary, however, we are fully prepared to handle all disputes in state and federal courts or arbitration.

Attorneys in this practice group have handled matters, including the defense of design professionals in multi-million dollar claims, on sports arenas, convention centers, and government facilities. We have also handled the defense of design professionals and hundreds of other cases of alleged professional malpractice, representation of contractors in many disputes involving construction defects, payment, and other claims and circumstances arising from simple to major project defaults. Our construction group contains attorneys who are listed in the publication "Best Lawyers in America" for expertise in construction matters and AV rated by Martindale-Hubbell.
