Construction Law

photo_6417_200905141When it comes to Massachusetts construction law, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. We handle a wide variety of construction disputes, ranging from litigating million dollar construction defect disputes to shoddy home improvement projects. Our construction clients include general contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, construction managers, condominium associations and unit owners, interior designers, and homeowners.

When litigating any construction dispute, we often partner with a select group of trusted civil engineers and other experts so we can properly assess the magnitude of the problem and the cost to cure. We also understand that many construction cases can be particularly complex and therefore expensive to litigate. Although we are always prepared to take cases to trial and beyond, we encourage our construction clients to consider forms of alternative dispute resolution such as mediation or arbitration, which can be particularly cost-effective in construction cases.
