OSHA Compliance and Litigation

Often times, our firm’s involvement in the early and fast-track defense of these regulatory matters are done in coordination with liability claims enabling us to limit otherwise damaging evidence in those actions.

Our Construction Practice Group provides general corporate representation to owners-developers and contractors including land acquisition, drafting and negotiating construction management agreements, subcontractor agreements, and professional and design services agreements.
Construction Risk Management and Insurance
Our insurance coverage attorneys work extensively on developing and implementing risk transfer strategies, as well as counsel clients on coverage issues for general liability, builders’ risk, wrap-up programs (both CCIP & OCIP).
