Construction & Infrastructure On The Level
To effectively navigate today’s fast-paced, multitrillion-dollar construction industry, clients need a specialized legal team that can structure and implement complicated projects, while avoiding and minimizing risks and disputes. With more than 40 attorneys focused on construction and government contracts law, Kilpatrick Townsend brings decades of experience in all types of construction-related legal matters — planning, permitting, financing, environmental compliance, negotiating, contract review and drafting, claim preparation, management and evaluation, dispute avoidance and resolution, insurance coverage, and litigation — throughout the U.S. and overseas. By making dispute prevention and early conflict resolution the cornerstones of our practice, we routinely help clients stay on time and on budget, while preserving critical business relationships.
We routinely represent public and private owners, contractors, equipment suppliers, construction managers, EPC contractors, design professionals, and specialty subcontractors in all phases of the construction process, including contract preparation; procurement, and administration; claim preparation, management, and evaluation; and risk management and insurance coverage. We have significant experience on all types of construction projects, including industrial and chemical facilities, power plants, pipelines, airports, water and wastewater facilities, tunnels, transportation and infrastructure projects, hospitals, hotels and convention centers, embassies, manufacturing, education facilities and environmental remediation. At all stages of the process, our attorneys focus on the avoidance, mitigation and management of risks and claims, while working closely with our client’s procurement and claims teams to ensure project success.
Prevent & Protect
To help keep projects on time and on budget, we proactively educate our clients and assist them with the proper contract administration, jobsite conditions documentation, and early dispute resolution to minimize the risk and exposure to claims and disputes. If unable to mitigate or avoid a conflict, we then leverage our unsurpassed experience in structured negotiations, DRB hearings, mediation, arbitration, and other forms of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) to cost-effectively resolve the construction disputes.
