Construction Law

Innovative, yet cost-effective, construction law solutions

The Construction Law Group at Burns White serves the legal needs of companies throughout the construction industry. Our Group acts as outside general counsel to a number of construction companies in the region, and we address their construction-law issues as they arise as well as working with other attorneys with Burns White to address the corporate, employment, real estate and other legal issues that these companies face. Collectively, the attorneys in our Construction Law Group have over 100 years of experience representing companies in the construction industry.

We know that you are not in business to pay legal fees and our approach to the practice of law reflects that reality. We provide our clients with cost-effective advice designed to keep them out of disputes to the extent possible. Where disputes are unavoidable, we aggressively represent the interests of our clients while remaining open to resolving disputes amicably so that our clients can preserve their business relationships.

We represent contractors (both general and subcontractors), design-builders, owners, design professionals (architects and engineers), and construction managers.
