The Heuer Law Group was founded in 1986 specifically to provide legal services to the building design and construction industry. Practical experience with design practices and construction business operations gives us critical insight and facilitates a proactive approach to clients’ legal needs. In that sense, we often function much like in-house counsel. Our understanding of the industry frequently enables us to foresee legal and practical difficulties that clients might face in their businesses. By working with them on a regular basis, we often can efficiently and inexpensively prevent or minimize the effects of such circumstances. We represent more than 250 firms on an on-going basis.
The Heuer Law Group provides original thinking and specialized advice to clients who own, develop, design or construct improvements to real estate. Our clients generally appreciate:
- Our preventive approach. We concentrate on preparing proper contracts and performing wise front-end planning.
- Our knowledge of the design and construction industry – minimizing the need to educate us about their problems.
- Our creative, constructive approach to solving unavoidable problems.
