Overview

The practice of construction law encompasses procurement, contracts of all types, project delivery and dispute resolution.

We share your goal of creating workable, enforceable contracts. We’ll identify and mitigate risks through effective document language, combining elements of contract and pricing models to create innovative solutions.

Fasken litigators represent clients at all levels of court and at arbitration and mediation. Construction disputes often involve multiple parties, long trials or arbitrations, volumes of documentation and dissection of complex technical processes. We’ll keep your objectives in mind, implementing efficient processes and open communication throughout the length of a matter.

We act for owners, developers, architects, engineers, contractors, subcontractors and suppliers on work ranging from routine projects, material and equipment supply contracts to major infrastructure developments and public-private partnerships.
