Construction, Development & Design

Large construction and development projects can test the mettle of even the most sophisticated and experienced participants. Agreements need to be negotiated and crafted to both facilitate the efficient completion of the project and address risk and liability if things go wrong. Multiple parties need to work in concert to address complicated issues day in and day out. In the event of a dispute, projects can come to a halt, with costly delays putting major projects in serious peril.

A Proud Legacy of Construction Law

The construction, development and design attorneys at Gibbs Giden know what is at stake in large construction projects and understand the legal and practical nuances that must be mastered for a project to proceed apace with minimal disruption. On public and private projects alike, our lawyers have extensive experience working closely with owners, general contractors, subcontractors, material suppliers and design professionals. In fact, construction law is in our firm’s DNA; we were founded in 1978 to represent and serve the unique interests of clients involved in the planning and building of construction projects. We continue to build on that legacy every day.
