Construction

From preparing and negotiating contracts to arbitrating, mediating and litigating construction disputes, our clients come to us for creative solutions to complex problems. We represent general contractors, subcontractors, design professionals and material suppliers who are engaged in the construction of industrial, commercial, residential and other building projects in the public and private sectors.

Our team of construction attorneys advises clients throughout all stages of construction projects—from bid placement to project execution and completion. We have handled some of the most high-stakes construction projects in the Gulf South, including the largest public construction project in Louisiana history. Publications such as Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business, Construction Lawyers Society of America (by invitation), The Best Lawyers in America and Louisiana Super Lawyers  recognize our attorneys for their work in construction law and construction litigation.

We stay abreast of the latest industry trends, including technological advancements, material improvements, labor and employment issues and safety regulations. Our attorneys also monitor changes to federal, state and local legislation that impact the industry and our clients’ businesses.  One of our attorneys—Michael Botnick—served for many years as New Orleans’ Deputy City Attorney and as the Director of Economic Development for the city.
