The construction industry practice group at BSW represents a broad range of clientele from all facets of the construction industry in matters of contract negotiation, claims avoidance, claims preparation, construction litigation in federal and state venues, as well as mediation and arbitration.
While litigation is often the result of a construction industry claim, claims avoidance is always preferred. Thoughtful drafting of construction contract documents is most often the best way to avoid the common disputes which arise in any construction project. Nevertheless, disputes will arise. When this happens, the members of the construction industry practice group have extensive litigation experience at all levels in numerous courts of law. Additionally, our firm has had much success in alternative dispute resolution, specifically mediation and arbitration. We know that successful conclusions are at the heart of all construction projects.
