Construction

McLane Middleton’s Construction Practice attorneys regularly advise clients with the development and permitting process, including land acquisition, structuring ownership vehicles, obtaining permits and approvals, negotiation and drafting of construction contracts and joint venture agreements, assisting with financing and leasing, and dispute resolution.  We advise and represent owners, general contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, architects and construction managers.

Our decades of experience includes:

  • Drafting requests for proposals and letters of understanding.
  • Negotiating and drafting joint venture agreements and contract documents, including experience with industry-wide form contracts or custom documents to address unique circumstances.
  • Drafting contract modifications to address scope changes and allocation of risks and responsibilities.
  • Advising on methods to secure payment, including guaranties, bonding and liens.
  • Providing dispute avoidance and project oversight assistance often arising out of claims due to unforeseen conditions, adverse weather, terminations for cause or convenience, suspension and force majeure events.
  • Representing clients in all phases of dispute resolution, including mediation, arbitration and litigation. 

We know the law and the practical side of construction and development projects, and dispute resolution.  Since construction projects involve significant investment, we know time is money.  We earned our reputation by listening to our clients’ needs and successfully delivering results-oriented approaches to construction matters. 

We also have on our team lawyers who have served in leadership positions in the organized bar, and who have been recognized by their peers, including Best Lawyers in America and Chambers.

We are here to help.  If you have any questions, please contact David K. Moynihan, chair of the Construction Practice Group, at (781) 904-2722 or [email protected].

A history of excellence

Our firm is organized, technological, and knowledgeable. Our history means we are recognized. But our reputation is built on the highest quality of service and experience in very specific areas of law.
