We act as counsel to a wide range of clientele in the field of construction, including ICI, residential and heavy construction sectors, representing contractors, owners, developers and a broad spectrum of subcontractors from major mechanical and electrical contractors to speciality trades. We also provide advice to lenders, insurers, sureties, architects, engineers and construction associations. Our lawyers work with appropriate financial, insurance and engineering advisors to assist our clients throughout the process of bidding, permitting, forecasting, planning and execution of projects on schedule. When necessary, our team can act quickly to take the lead and ensure timely registration of liens, including enforcement of liens or applications to vacate, as well as calling on performance or labour & material payment bonds and advancing breach of trust claims within the statutory time frames. In addition, we provide advice and interpretation of existing agreements and are well versed in construction litigation, including payment enforcement and non-performance issues. We are frequently involved in resolving disputes through mediation, arbitration or other forms of alternative dispute resolution with a view to avoiding costly litigation where possible. Our experience with electronic discovery of documents and our knowledge of construction law has allowed us to become successfully involved in several long-term, multi-million dollar claims. Regardless of the size of the claim, however, we pride ourselves in providing highly competent litigation services to our diverse clientele.
