The construction industry combines strict deadlines, a fast-paced environment and cooperation among many players to ensure a timely and successful project.

Robinson & McElwee’s construction attorneys have the experience to guide clients through all phases of a construction development from financing and design to implementation, all the way to the finished product.

Additionally, we partner with our colleagues in other practice areas such as Business & Corporate, Environment, Labor & Employment and Financial Services to offer our clients a full range of legal services in support of the construction industry.

Robinson & McElwee serves the construction industry in all aspects of construction transactions and resolution of construction-related disputes.

Construction can’t proceed without taking into account storm water runoff and other environmental concerns. Robinson & McElwee attorneys are familiar with permitting requirements and can help you respond to enforcement actions that may follow an inspector’s site visit.
Our attorneys represent general contractors, owners and developers in building construction and heavy highway construction litigation. Our goal is to avoid litigation where possible, but where a legal resolution is needed, we have attorneys with years of litigation and arbitration experience.
Before construction can begin, property must be bought, and subcontractors brought on board. We have extensive experience in title review and in negotiating the contracts with suppliers and subcontractors that are needed for as smooth a project as possible. We can also help with structuring tenants’ leases to accommodate unexpected difficulties that may arise.
