Navigating the complex legal landscape of the construction industry—including federal construction contracts—requires an experienced team well-versed in steering clients to successful completion of their projects and satisfactory resolution of disputes and other challenges that can hinder a client’s goals. Fox Rothschild’s team of construction attorneys is a seasoned group who possess extensive industry knowledge and insight and have a deep passion for helping clients engaged in the construction industry: domestic and international companies, contractors, subcontractors, construction managers, owners, architects, engineers, sureties, insurance companies, suppliers, construction trade associations, lending institutions, real estate developers and others.
We work effectively with clients from front-end to close-out of a project, including consultation as needed during construction administration. This not only keeps construction costs low but also helps to mitigate the expenses of litigation.
For clients engaged in the bidding and fulfillment of government contracts, we provide strategic counsel and practical advice to help companies understand the complex rules and regulations. We frequently represent construction companies, suppliers, service contractors and sureties in disputes arising out of contracts with government agencies. Our attorneys have extensive knowledge of the special procedures and legal principles applicable to government contracts and advise on issues such as bid protests and mistakes, changes and suspensions, differing site conditions, terminations, cost and pricing data, Miller Act bonds, ethics compliance, dispute procedures and wage-hour and labor matters under federal laws such as the Davis-Bacon Act and the Service Contract Act.
