We assist clients in addressing the legal challenges of engaging in the design, development, financing, performance and management of major construction and government procurement contracts. Our group has special experience working on complex, high-visibility projects across the Gulf Coast. Our clients consist of public and private owners and developers, prime contractors and subcontractors, construction managers, equipment suppliers, architects/engineers and other design professionals, and sureties. This breadth of experience enables us to handle the complete spectrum of issues arising before, during and after project completion.
Lawyers frequently work with attorneys within the firm’s other practice areas to address the many issues associated with any particular project – whether tax, finance, real estate, corporate investigations and regulatory compliance, or any other relevant issue. The firm’s full range of practices enables us to offer clients sophisticated legal services that are coordinated and streamlined.
In addition, when public relations and quasi-political issues impact construction projects, we have been successful in coordinating teams of outside consultants – including public relations specialists and local government contacts – and getting projects back on track.
