Construction Services

Overview

Walter | Haverfield’s team of real estate attorneys is well-versed in the challenges, as well as the opportunities, that arise as a result of a new construction or renovation project. Our work begins long before the first shovel is put in the ground, negotiating a wide array of contracts on behalf of owners and developers, as well as contractors.

When necessary, we work in tandem with our team of seasoned litigators to evaluate and pursue possible arbitration, mediation or litigation remedies for defects in design or construction delays in delivery.

With the large number of construction projects that we’ve handled over the years, we know what to look for and what to guard against to help our clients realize their construction objectives.
