Construction Contracting & Disputes
From the most sophisticated public and private commercial and industrial projects to residential construction that exemplifies the culmination of personal achievements, Brouse McDowell’s construction law attorneys provide a full complement of legal services for all types of construction projects.
We work with developers, owners, general and specialty contractors, design professionals, construction managers, owner’s representatives, and material manufacturers on contracting, contract administration, claims resolution, design and project conceptualization. We focus on risk management and loss avoidance from conception to close-out.
Brouse McDowell’s attorneys have experience negotiating and litigating the most common contract forms such as those published by the AIA, Consensus Docs and the EJCDC. We are equally familiar with many of the forms utilized by public entities, and we can assist with the preparation and review of customized contracts. We protect our clients’ interests with contract forms and terminology, identify and consult on issues that arise during the lifecycle of the project, and provide counsel and dispute resolution services.
