Construction Law

Construction Law

The attorneys at Roberts & Stevens who practice Construction Law represent clients who are involved in every aspect of construction including developers, owners, lending institutions, governments, architects, engineers, general contractors, construction managers, subcontractors, and suppliers.

Our attorneys have extensive experience, resources, knowledge and expertise in all types of Construction Law from contract preparation to environmental issues to business representation. Our litigation team manages the risks inherent in the construction process to avoid costly litigation, including the use of alternative dispute resolution (mediation and arbitration), in order to bring about favorable resolutions to their clients in the most timely and least expensive manner.

Roberts & Stevens’ Construction Lawyers work closely with attorneys in other practice groups such as business law, government, labor & employment law, litigation, tax law, real estate law, alternative dispute resolution, and environmental law to provide clients the expertise they need.
