The Construction and Public Contracts attorneys of Kilpatrick Townsend are nationally recognized and well versed in dealing with complex construction matters throughout the United States and overseas, with further focus on representing public owners on large infrastructure projects and procurement and contract matters. Through our exclusive focus on construction-related issues, the group has a vast amount of experience in virtually every type of construction project, including wastewater treatment plants, airports, tunnels, prisons, hospitals, office buildings, sports arenas, schools, hotels and resorts, power plants, and industrial facilities.
We routinely draft and negotiate design and construction contracts for large, complex projects. As part of our experience representing owners, contractors and design professionals throughout the industry, we have written and negotiated contracts based upon all the industry standard forms (such as the AIA forms) and have developed custom contract documents for specific clients and projects. Based upon our experience drafting and negotiating contract documents, as well as our advice and representation of clients in construction disputes, we know what works in a contract and what does not.
In addition, Construction and Public Contracts attorneys have “written the book” on construction law. We have written definitive articles and books and presented seminars on a wide variety of construction law issues, including drafting and negotiating construction and design contracts, managing risk on construction projects, alternative delivery methods, proving and pricing construction claims, construction change order claims, construction acceleration claims, differing site conditions and alternative disputes resolution. We have also edited and contributed to the nationwide Aspen/Wiley Construction Law Update for the past 16 years and published the book Construction Disputes: Practice Guide with Forms.
