Construction Law

Our attorneys in Newport News and Norfolk, VA have substantial experience representing general contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, owners, and others involved in public and private construction projects. Construction projects often involve tight deadlines, multiple business entities, complex laws and regulations, and multi-tiered contractual relationships. As a result, construction projects frequently result in costly and time-consuming legal disputes.

Having an experienced attorney versed in the specifics of construction law on your side is critical to ensuring that your company obtains a favorable resolution of a legal dispute. For example, while many construction project participants have significant protections by virtue of mechanic's liens and payment and performance bonds, strict compliance with contractual and legal procedures is necessary to take full advantage of those protections. We can help guide your company through the steps that must be taken to ensure that your right to be paid for work performed on a construction project is preserved and enforced.

Another common source of disputes involves public construction projects for which municipalities and other governmental entities are required to conduct a public bidding process. A company may expend substantial resources preparing and submitting a low bid only to find that another bidder has been improperly selected for the project. Alternatively, your company might be selected as the low bidder, only to have the selection challenged by another bidder who you feel has not met the requirements of the contract. In either case, the assistance of an experienced lawyer is crucial to helping your company navigate the strict deadlines and complex legal requirements associated with the bid dispute process. We can guide your company through the process and help ensure that your bid is fairly considered in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations.
