Construction contracts assign specific risk between the owner and contractor. Many clients call upon us at the outset of a project to assist in drafting, reviewing, and negotiating construction design build, and construction management contracts. Our goal is to assist in taking affirmative steps at the front-end of projects, which are designed to minimize the likelihood that claims and disputes will arise later.
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. We assist clients with position letters and notices in construction claims matters. When claims, disputes, litigation, mediation, or arbitration proceedings do arise, we routinely handle those as well. We have experience in presenting, defending, negotiating, arbitrating, mediating, and trying complex construction claims and disputes. The insight we have gained from our extensive experience helps us to better anticipate and avoid the problems that can arise on a construction project, and thus better service our clients who call upon us for front-end contract preparation services. Additionally, we represent clients concerning trucking accidents, traffic safety accidents and accidents involving personal injury and property damage.
Our construction lawyers work diligently each day to provide effective assistance by identifying, addressing, and efficiently resolving both one-time and reoccurring problems and issues faced by any one of a myriad of participants involved in the construction process.
Our clients include private and public owners, contractors, subcontractors, material suppliers, architects, engineers, real estate developers, construction managers, construction trade associations, lending institutions, insurance companies, payment and performance bond sureties, manufacturers, tool suppliers, equipment suppliers and individuals. We are licensed in the states of West Virginia, Virginia, Kentucky, North Carolina and Pennsylvania.
