Kemp Klein’s construction law practice focuses on the needs of owners, general contractors, subcontractors, design professionals and suppliers, as well as bonding companies and insurers.
The firm’s attorneys who practice in this area have two decades of experience in litigation (and litigation avoidance) and in alternative dispute forums, such as arbitration and mediation. They are at home dealing with governmental, industrial, commercial and residential construction matters, and with the spectrum of different issues raised in each setting.
Our construction lawyers have drafted and negotiated construction contracts and are routinely involved in providing advice and guidance in the interpretation and effects of contract clauses.
During all project phases, our attorneys are available to provide timely assistance in dealing with problems and avoiding disputes. If disputes do arise that require legal attention, Kemp Klein attorneys have extensive experience handling the claims and issues that often arise.
Our attorneys have prosecuted and defended faulty construction cases, delay, disruption and acceleration claims, concealed and changed conditions, default terminations, Spearin claims, construction lien perfection and enforcement, performance and payment bond disputes, payment disputes arising from no damage for delay clauses, pay-if-paid provisions in contracts, consequential damage limitations and liquidated damages clauses, project scheduling, subrogation issues and most other matters unique to the construction arena.
As a full service law firm, we also serve our construction industry clients in matters ancillary, but indispensable, to the building process, and regularly do so in such areas as environmental, leasing, taxation, municipal, finance, real estate, zoning, land use and related fields.
