For over four decades, Severson & Werson’s construction attorneys have faithfully served the design and construction industries and successfully and efficiently resolved all kinds of construction problems and disputes. The firm’s lawyers have formed particularly strong alliances with members of the design professional community. The firm’s attorneys employ a practical, problem-oriented approach to effectively and efficiently resolve all matters of construction disputes. Several of the firm’s lawyers in the Construction Practice Group each have decades of experience focusing on construction law, serving as general counsel to dozens of design and construction firms and having lectured nationally and received awards and other similar recognition for their achievements and specialized knowledge and skill.

Firm Information

For over 65 years, the firm has provided consistent, reliable, unwavering support to our clients. The ethic here is service in its best, truest sense. We understand that our singular calling is service of our clients and their interests. Severson lawyers are taught from the start that our clients know their business, its environment, and their ultimate needs better than we do. We first listen closely, consider fully, and then provide honest, straightforward advice and advocacy.

At Severson, we recognize that our short term satisfaction and long term success depends on a long-term partnership with our clients. We constantly strive to become and remain a valued component of our clients’ support teams. Severson’s historical insurance practice led the firm to develop one of the premier construction practices in California.

When our clients are embroiled in litigation, our aim is not to litigate but to resolve – to bring the matter to the swiftest, surest and most successful result possible. In this era of high stakes and early settlements, real trial skills are becoming increasingly rare. Not so at Severson, where there is an extraordinary wealth of trial experience.
