Contractors, public and private owners, developers, lenders, sureties, suppliers, and design professionals seek Clark Hill’s counsel for solutions to their legal matters. Our team advises on every facet of the construction process—ranging from assistance with real estate acquisition and project financing, to negotiating and drafting contracts and project administration, claim preparation, risk management, and dispute resolution.
With one of the largest construction law practices in the country, clients benefit from our experience and connectivity in the construction industry.
Architects, engineers, and contractors who have practiced in the construction industry for many years make up our attorney roster. Hands-on experience enables us to resolve construction disputes and professional liability matters involving commercial, industrial, heavy, and highway projects.
Our firm assists with large-scale to smaller construction initiatives and specialized projects, including power plants (nuclear, fossil, solar, and wind), water treatment and distribution facilities, manufacturing, processing and assembly plants, petrochemical facilities, and commercial and industrial building. We advise on construction issues pertaining to public facilities, such as schools, hospitals, government buildings, hotels, sports facilities, warehouses, prisons, commercial and residential developments, retail centers, marinas, elevated light rail systems, airports, bridges, and parking structures.
Clients rely on our team to negotiate and draft construction contracts, and to provide analysis and advice on project delivery formats, indemnity provisions, insurance requirements, progress and final payments, project closeout, and warranty provisions. We also understand our clients’ need for efficient dispute resolution without disrupting ongoing construction or escalating an already tense situation, and always strive to provide a quick and cost-effective investigation of disputes and where possible, the negotiation of a prompt and equitable resolution.
