To help prevent losses, we provide cost-effective legal advice and representation to owners, contractors, developers, sub-trades, engineering professionals, suppliers, manufacturers, insurers, property managers, and governmental bodies.
The majority of disputes in this area arise out of the contractual relationship between the parties. Parties to these contracts often use standard form contracts, which cannot and do not provide for the intricacies of a specific project. We can assist by drafting contracts that are project specific, ensuring that you are properly protected.
