Any major construction project requires the seamless collaboration of numerous parties. Proactive legal counsel can ensure that things go smoothly over the life of the project-or quickly and effectively respond to disputes as they arise. Never enter into any legal agreement without first consulting with a qualified Houston construction lawyer.

Our firm has a proven record of excellence in advising and representing parties in both contractual matters, business litigation, and arbitration.

As a full-service Houston business and commercial law firm, we take special pride in working with our clients whenever they require experienced counsel. We recognize that with the sheer number of contracts entered into for even a small construction project, there is always the possibility that misinterpretation of contract terms, failure to perform services, or other circumstances can result in a legal dispute. We offer decades of combined litigation experience to resolve common construction-related disputes, which can include:
In addition to significant trial experience, our attorneys have successfully represented clients in construction arbitration and mediation. While zealous advocacy forms an essential part of successful representation in all three scenarios, having an in-depth understanding of the process-and how to use it to a client's benefit-is equally advantageous. No matter how your legal dispute is best resolved, we offer the experience to see it through to the best possible outcome.
