Construction

For players in the construction industry, lost time is lost opportunity. Construction clients need advice and insight from someone who can get their hands around a problem quickly and apply relevant experience to achieve practical solutions without the need for a “crash course” in how jobs are built.

We make it our business to know the construction world from every angle. FM actively assists contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, developers, sureties, insurers and design professionals in all aspects of construction and government contracting. Our extensive experience allows us to understand and effectively address project problems at the jobsite, in the boardroom, and in the courtroom. As a result, our clients view us not only as skilled advocates, but also as reliable business advisers. Firm members routinely work with our clients on a wide variety of construction issues including:

  • schedule and time impact analysis
  • plan and specification review
  • bid responsiveness
  • change order and claim development
  • cost analysis
  • indemnity claims
  • contract drafting and negotiation
  • scope analysis
  • project management support
  • claim analysis and prosecution
  • construction defects
  • insurance matters
  • labor problems
  • productivity analysis

When we cannot help to avoid or resolve jobsite problems through strategic counseling, we employ our skills to protect our clients in all phases of dispute resolution. Whether the forum is mediation, arbitration, or trial, our lawyers use their knowledge and expertise to advocate successfully on behalf of our construction clients throughout the country.
