The construction industry involves the collaboration of a multitude of entities to achieve a common goal. Proportionate with the excitement of reaching these goals, however, is the potential for conflict and liability. Our industry experience allows us to bring innovative results for fast and sound resolution of disputes – oftentimes before they reach claim status. Through our full range of services, MBM’s construction attorneys can meet every need within the construction industry. We can draft, negotiate and review contracts and provide assistance in public bid disputes, project financing, development, and zoning. We are adept in both public and private construction projects and have resolved disputes through mediation, negotiation, arbitration, and litigation.
Intertwined with the representation of specific construction entities, MBM’s construction attorneys serve the surety industry.
Understanding that sureties are called upon to make determinations of bond coverage – sometimes with little notice – our first-hand construction experience allows for reasoned decisions and prompt advice.
We have handled performance and payment bond claims, surety take-over, contractor financing (when appropriate), and indemnity claims. When necessary, we have partnered with other construction-consulting firms throughout the East Coast to achieve swift resolution of claims.
