Led by Larry Treglia — with the assistance of especially Mike Murtaugh, Michelle Berger and Michelle Generaux — the Firm has a team of attorneys with extensive experience in public and private construction matters. We counsel our clients at every stage of the construction process, from the negotiation of construction agreements and development of risk management programs to the collection of fees and resolution of disputes, always with the goal of avoiding potential losses and unnecessary costs.
Our attorneys are not only knowledgeable about the various aspects of construction law such as mechanic's liens, prompt pay rights, governmental licensing and regulation, contract interpretation, surety claims, indemnification and insurance coverage, but they are also familiar with the practicalities and nuances of the design, construction and dispute resolution processes. Our services include counseling concerning a wide array of matters from entity formation and asset protection to regulatory compliance and risk management, contract drafting and negotiations, and the handling of collection matters and claim disputes.
Regarding disputes, our attorneys have a tract record of successfully litigating both in the courts and in various alternative dispute resolution forums, as well as a history of creating more cost-effective routes to successful resolutions. Likewise, while the Firm has the resources to handle the largest construction claim, we also recognize that not all matters require a team of attorneys and paralegals, and we work with our clients to develop cost-effective litigation strategies.
The Firm's construction clients include not only general and subcontractors and design professionals, but also suppliers, construction managers, developers, owners, and insurance carriers.
The Firm's attorneys are active in construction industry associations and frequently present seminars and lectures on construction issues.
