Burr & Forman's Construction & Project Development team provides advice and assistance to all sectors of the construction industry. Our attorneys work with general contractors, private and public owners, subcontractors, suppliers, developers, architects, engineers, construction managers, program managers, insurers, and surety companies.

We assist our clients from the beginning of the project, with drafting and negotiating contracts, and throughout the project to lend advice and assist with claims avoidance. If claims do arise, we have extensive experience to help resolve these claims. Our experienced construction litigation team represents clients in extremely complex construction cases in both trial and arbitration.
