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.
