Construction Law

A legal foundation you can count on.

Construction law attorneys at Young Moore represent owners, general contractors, architects, engineers, subcontractors, material manufacturers or suppliers, and insurers in disputes arising out of the design or construction of a variety of projects ranging in size and complexity from large public and private commercial projects to residences. Our attorneys have substantial experience in construction product defect cases. (See Product Liability and Professional Liability.)

We assist clients with contract negotiations, pre-suit resolution of disputes, lien and payment bond matters, surety issues, administrative hearings, arbitration, litigation, and insurance coverage. Our attorneys are familiar with construction practices and procedures in public (“multi-prime”) as well as private projects. We also have substantial experience in cases raising issues of delay, faulty materials or workmanship, and bad faith claims.

Issues concerning lead and mold, and other environmental concerns, often arise in the context of construction. We are experienced in lead and mold identification and remediation, and in litigation involving related personal injury and property damage claims, including liability insurance implications. (See Environmental Litigation.)

We are happy to become involved early in the construction process to assist clients in identifying and resolving issues that may otherwise lead to protracted litigation. We welcome the opportunity to evaluate claims and defenses for clients at the earliest stage possible and discuss all phases of representation with clients with the objective to provide the most cost-effective representation.

Communications are not privileged until the client and lawyer have agreed on legal representation. Please do not send confidential information to us via e-mail or in any other manner without first communicating directly with us about the attorney-client relationship. The transmission of an e-mail request for information does not create an attorney-client relationship. Your initial email should only contain a list of the parties interested in the matter so that we can make sure we have no conflicts before you convey any information about your case.
