ConstructLaw® discusses recent cases and current issues in construction law.  It is published by Troutman Pepper’s Construction Practice Group.

Troutman Pepper’s construction attorneys handle the full life cycle of a project, from project planning, risk assessments, project delivery advice, drafting bid and proposal requests, bid and proposal review and assessment, drafting and negotiation of contract terms, and analysis of project risks to counseling on project delivery systems, project controls, project management best practices, and early resolution of project disputes. Our attorneys also advise on insurance, bonding, and risk-management issues unique to the construction industry.

We are well-known for our construction litigation experience. In the last five years alone, we have handled at least a dozen cases with more than $50 million in dispute. And we don’t just handle litigation – we try cases and win them. We have prevailed in complex construction cases before courts, juries, administrative bodies, and arbitration panels in multiple states and throughout the world. Our litigation experience also enhances our skill in mitigating litigation by proactively helping clients manage and avoid claims at the outset. We make it our priority to reduce the risk of extended litigation that can result in the loss of time, capital, and resources needed to complete a project. We are proud of our track record of resolving disputes — large and small — well before our clients were faced with the costs associated with litigation. If disputes cannot be resolved informally, however, our adversaries know that we have been there before. You can learn more about our practice at
