Construction Law

Whether the construction project be large or small and whether you are a buyer or seller of construction services, you need practical advice when addressing construction issues which tend to change as quickly as they are addressed. Carlile Patchen & Murphy has experience representing owners, developers, bankers, architects, engineers, construction managers, contractors, subcontractors and material suppliers in every facet of construction. Our experience spans both the public and private sector, and we have been recognized for both our service to the industry and our experience in teaching others about the intricacies of construction related issues.

Bidding disputes, liability issues, pressure on profit margins and the question of standard versus specialized documentation are only a few of the increasingly important issues to address. We are experienced in litigation and arbitration cases, but also have successfully avoided protracted disputes by working closely with clients early in a project or early in a dispute. Our services are aimed at making pragmatic, economical decisions in this increasingly complex arena.
