Construction

All construction projects begin with one common goal — to deliver a quality installation on time and on budget. Before that goal can be realized, land must be moved, materials acquired, workforces put into action and risks managed. Porter Wright attorneys have helped clients to develop real estate and construction opportunities, defend their interests, bring together project teams, and complete public and private construction projects for generations.

Our attorneys assist owners and builders with land use contracts, environmental issues, financing and real estate liens. We work with developers, contractors, subcontractors, engineers and architects to protect their interests. When financing is in question, our attorneys assist lenders and borrowers with construction and permanent financing so projects can come to fruition. And, when the project is for a public entity, we assist with bond transactions.

We understand the day-to-day challenges industry stakeholders face, and our project expertise is vast, whether assisting clients with a new build or retrofitting an existing structure to meet LEED standards. From land acquisition to project financing, troubled contractors to delay claims, and labor contracts to on-site safety issues, we focus on managing risks and protecting interests, so our clients can stay focused on achieving their goals.
