The business and legal sides of a construction project are much like the physical construction itself, with several phases of planning, negotiation, resource accumulation and execution. At GBS, we represent owners, developers and contractors in all aspects of the construction process, beginning with land acquisition and contract formation to eventual lease and sale of the completed project to new tenants and owners.

In the close-knit world of building and construction, we understand that an excellent reputation is often our clients’ best asset. When disputes arise, we work with our clients and parties on the opposite side of the table to reach favorable resolutions that preserve key relationships while minimizing negative publicity. We regularly represent clients in arbitration, mediation and other alternative dispute resolution proceedings. A number of our construction attorneys are trained mediators, enabling us to pursue alternative dispute resolution methods that can minimize expenses and keep projects running more smoothly.

In the event that an arrangement fails or a problem arises, we are able to easily and quickly shift roles from a business focus to a litigation-ready approach. In such cases, we apply all of our trial knowledge and courtroom experience on behalf of our clients’ interests.

Our attorneys are seasoned litigators and stand ready to use all of the tools at their disposal to develop and present an effective case. With the reputation as one of the state’s most formidable litigation firms, we have the experience and ability to successfully resolve even the most complex construction issues for our clients.
