Our lawyers counsel many clients in the construction industry. They work with public and private general contractors, subcontractors, architects, engineers, and real estate firms on their traditional, CM, fast-track, multi-prime, and phased projects. They prepare the necessary contracts, agreements and subcontracts, while anticipating potential issues in order to minimize disputes.

If there is a dispute, our experienced litigation attorneys will defend and enforce your rights in court, arbitration or mediation. They’re experienced in handling construction and product warranty enforcement and defense as well as issues involving insurance, design errors and mechanic's liens. They also provide pre-construction advice on preserving lien rights or avoiding lien attachment. Further, when handling government or private projects, our attorneys can assist with bid protests for public jobs.

At Shutts & Bowen, our team of construction attorneys has the legal and industry experience and knowledge to help avoid liens, close contracts, submit bids and manage disputes.
