Construction Contracts and Litigation

The Firm’s construction practice encompasses both residential and commercial construction issues. The firm assists clients from the initial planning stages for a project through the completion of construction, both on behalf of owners and contractors. Construction contracts are complex and require a detailed understanding of how risk is allocated between the parties to the contract. The lawyers at Fagan & Emert can assist with the negotiation of the contract to minimize risk, help you understand that risk which cannot be avoided, and advise you regarding asset protection throughout the construction process. If a dispute arises, we do our best to assist our clients to find a solution consistent with that client’s unique goals. If a dispute cannot be resolved informally, we will assist you through the litigation or arbitration process, whichever is applicable to your contract.
