Construction projects are complex undertakings with multiple parties obligated to perform specific tasks in a timely manner. Because these matters are complex, it’s imperative that you have reliable, effective legal counsel. Becker & Hebert has extensive experience representing clients in the construction industry. We provide detailed tailored guidance to safeguard your interests in any project you undertake, as well as robust litigation services when you are damaged by a party’s breach of contract or are accused of a breach yourself.
Our experienced construction law attorneys negotiate, draft and review contracts for any party with an interest in a construction project, including:
We negotiate terms to protect our clients from claims of nonperformance, defect, and delay, as well as other issues.
Because of the complexity of large construction projects, disputes are inevitable. Issues we commonly manage for construction business clients include:
Conflict doesn’t necessarily mean that expensive and exhausting litigation must follow. Our attorneys take a proactive approach to resolving disputes. Often, the controversy amounts to a misunderstanding over expected performance, which can be cured by revisiting the contract and reforming imprecise terms. When an actual breach has occurred, we search for efficient ways to implement the most appropriate remedy. We use negotiation, mediation and arbitration as alternatives to control costs and save time. But when justice requires aggressive litigation, we are equipped to diligently advocate for our clients’ rights.
