Leading regional and national companies that design, develop, finance, build, and manage commercial construction projects rely on Krieg DeVault’s construction industry knowledge for successful completion. Our lawyers emphasize careful negotiation and drafting of architectural agreements, construction contracts, construction management agreements, and loan documentation right from the start of every project. We represent owners, contractors, architects, and lenders in concerns that arise at every stage of the project – from detailing all commitments at the start to core construction law claims of extra work, acceleration, warranty claims, and a host of related contractual issues. Clients on all sides of construction projects rely on us to identify and resolve issues of cost, design error, project management, and liens that can lead to litigation, and we frequently use mediation and arbitration to resolve disputes effectively. Using in-depth industry knowledge, we solve problems and minimize cost and delays for our clients.
