Services

We serve some of the most sophisticated construction and engineering firms in the industry. We will earn your trust, and want to be more than your attorneys. Our goal is long-term partnership with our clients.

At BBG Construction Law,  we support our clients through every step of the dispute resolution process, including negotiations, mediation, arbitration, and – if necessary – trial. Our experience extends to jury and bench trials, judicial references, arbitrations, bid protests, dispute review boards, and administrative hearings. Whether you are the plaintiff or defendant, when a trial is necessary, our attorneys have the experience to try the case with confidence and skill. Our agile, intuitive response to problems allows us to tailor a solution that’s right for you, saving you time, money, and stress.

Preparing credible and well-supported change orders and claims for additional time and money in response to unanticipated and changed circumstances are essential to project success. Almost every project has a need for changes to the original scope of work at some point, and following correct procedures and best practices goes a long way toward avoiding any conflict over claims. Our lawyers add real value by applying decades of experience in pursuing and defending claims. Our goal is to support the project team by proactively avoiding claims.  When they are necessary, we’ll help draft documents in a manner that demands attention and approval, so you can get the job done.

From pre-construction planning to preparing contracts to drafting change orders, getting a project from start to finish is a big job. Our attorneys are here to provide counsel from beginning to end to make the process more timely, efficient, and seamless for everyone involved. We provide close support to project teams to ensure the project is in the best possible position for success from a contractual and legal standpoint. If a project appears headed towards a dispute, our team will proactively avoid problems by identifying and resolving issues early, or by developing a strategy and timeline for cost-effective resolution. We allow your project team to focus on what they do best – building the project.

The basis of any well-executed project is a well-crafted and negotiated contract.  A good contract can not only set appropriate expectations for all parties, but it can also head off any issues or misunderstandings once the project is underway. A proper review (and sometimes negotiation) of a contract can be one of your greatest assets when it comes to project management.

 

Our attorneys have reviewed and negotiated hundreds of contracts ranging in value from $1M to over $1.5B and have supported our clients through the procurement process from the RFQ phase through the award. We are experienced in most forms of contract delivery, including traditional bid, CM agent, CMAR, design-build, EPC, integrated project delivery, and PPP, so you won’t waste any time getting us up to speed. We are ready to quickly and effectively prepare the contracts you need, so you can get to work.

Risks are inherent in all businesses, but the construction industry poses some unique challenges to companies trying to assess and mitigate how much risk. The risks in construction are different from other industries and the allocation of risk and the economic consequences of risk are significant contributors to project success.

 

At BBG Construction Law, we work with our clients to develop effective processes for:

 

  • Event identification
  • Risk assessment
  • Response and mitigation planning
  • Communication
  • Controls
  • Monitoring

 

Preparation is the key to success. Managing risk is best done proactively, so creating processes to assess and mitigate risk early is vital to your project’s success. We’ll help identify areas of concern and find tailored solutions that fit your business and projects.

We know that sometimes your legal needs go beyond simple contract review or even dispute resolution.  Your specific need for legal counsel is as unique as your business. For that reason, we offer tailored service and personalized counsel, with a focus on truly listening to your needs. 

 

With over 20 years of in-house legal experience, our attorneys have been responsible for ensuring the effective and efficient delivery of legal services for ENR top 10 and top 50 companies. We bring that experience to bear for you, and focus on delivering results at the lowest possible cost. Our attorneys have a unique insight into how you view our role and how we can best help your company succeed and prosper in a highly competitive environment.

You face a variety of real estate issues in your day-to-day business, whether it be negotiating leases for offices or project sites, navigating easements and property restrictions affecting construction, lien priority for mechanic’s lien issues, or deed restrictions on multi-family developments.

 

At BBG Construction Law, we handle these issues daily. As a result, we deal with them efficiently and effectively on behalf of our clients – saving you time AND money.

 

Beyond these standard real estate issues, many Contractors are also entering the development marketplace and taking a more active role in the early development of the projects they will eventually build. Whether you need to structure development transactions, manage the purchase transaction and do the associated due diligence, manage the public or private financing for a transaction, or obtain governmental approvals and entitlements for a proposed project, we’re here to help. BBG Construction Law  has over fifteen years of development and real estate experience, from both a business and legal standpoint. We’ll put that experience to work for you.

Even Though We are a Smaller Firm, They Respond. I Feel Like I’m a priority of theirs. The advice they’ve given has always been sound legal advice. From a value-for-money perspective, they are valuable to me. They are fair in their billing and don’t nickeland-dime me. You get what you pay for, and you get Great value from them.”
