In short, I help companies and individuals involved in legal disputes. Most of my practice involves construction projects with payment disputes. I also represent banks on secured lending matters and businesses trying to enforce noncompete agreements.
Construction companies and developers use the services of construction / development lawyers. These lawyers handle bigger developments that involve many parties, regulations, and permits. For example, developers of big projects are often required to determine a project's environmental impact, as well as file paperwork, hold public hearings, obtain local government agency approval, maintain worksite safety standards, and negotiate project financing. Construction and development law firms ensure you meet all regulatory requirements and prepare the legal documents and contracts you need.
