Spilman’s construction law practice is a full service, interdisciplinary practice consisting of experienced construction practitioners and drawing on our associated practices in real estate, economic development, labor and employment, workers’ compensation, product liability, corporate law, and litigation.

The firm’s construction law practice group assists professionals in construction, design, engineering, and associated industries. Our attorneys represent developers, general and sub-contractors, property owners and managers, design professionals, insurers, and product manufacturers, including construction supervisors and related management. Spilman’s construction law attorneys also work closely with lenders, sureties, insurers and inspectors, and we have experience with matters involving government entities on the federal, state and local levels.

Spilman’s attorneys handle a full range of commercial, industrial, residential and mixed use projects. Our construction attorneys have experience in utility projects involving power plants, natural gas facilities, and sewer pipelines, as well as other infrastructure projects, such as roadways, bridges, tunnels and overpasses. Spilman attorneys have represented numerous clients in site development and slope stabilization matters, and we have handled construction-related legal matters affecting schools, hospitals, and student housing developments, as well as government facilities encompassing courthouses, libraries, prisons and administrative offices. In addition, our team members have created niche practices spanning industrial and environmental matters.

While Spilman’s construction lawyers seek to avoid claims through careful negotiation and drafting of construction contracts and regular consultation during the project, disputes do arise. When they do, Spilman’s experienced construction litigators have the knowledge and experience to prosecute or defend claims or suits efficiently and effectively.  The firm has particular experience in disputes involving:

  • Mechanic’s liens
  • Cost impact and delay claims
  • Construction defects
  • Payment and performance bond claims
  • Environmental compliance
  • Permitting and licensing
  • Construction financing
  • Employment and immigration
  • Occupational safety and health
  • Workers’ compensation
  • Insurance coverage

Spilman attorneys handle all forms of litigation before courts and in arbitration. Our team also includes experienced mediators and arbitrators.
