CONSTRUCTION LAW

Participants in the construction industry face distinct legal issues – from developing projects of exceptional quality of design and construction to effectively managing and controlling costs and risks.

Whether it is reviewing a contract or the scope of professional service agreements, resolving a labor or bid dispute, dealing with changes and related costs, or addressing sales and use tax, MBM Law’s Pittsburgh–based construction attorneys craft the solutions you need for timely and effective resolution. And with our preventive law philosophy, we strive to help our clients prevent disputes before they even begin.

Our team of experienced construction attorneys in Pittsburgh has a solid foundation with extensive industry experience and skilled architects/attorneys. We offer a distinct advantage in providing legal services because we understand the specifics of our clients’ business. We can synthesize and analyze the most complex issues to assist you in avoiding legal problems and costly litigation. With our knowledge and sophistication on the latest legal decisions and regulations affecting the construction trade, we also provide valuable insight and services to keep clients informed of current legal trends and topics.

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 – often times before they reach claim status. Through our full range of services, MBM’s construction lawyers 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.
