Through initial phases of contracts to completed operations, our attorneys are as versed in the demands upon North Carolina contractors as they are in the courtroom. That experience allows us to implement case strategies to achieve our client’s goals. Our construction litigation team regularly assists construction clients with contract negotiations, risk transfer, liens, construction defect claims, construction site accidents and OSHA investigations and citations.
