Construction – Coronavirus Response Information

COVID-19 is rapidly impacting the local and global construction industry in a multitude of ways. The clients we work with – developers, general contractors, and subcontractors – all feel the repercussions of increased health and safety concerns, labor shortages, supply chain delays, and increased financing tensions.

Whether it’s litigation avoidance, preventive work on contract documents, contract negotiations, bid disputes, or management of ongoing change orders or issues involving unforeseen conditions, we’ll work with you to manage the legalities of your business without slowing down your progress.

In response to COVID-19, we assist clients with:
