Construction Law

Stahl, Davies, Sewell, Chavarria & Friend, LLP counsels developers, property owners, designers and builders in all phases of project development including design and construction.  We represent clients involved in large scale commercial, residential, and industrial projects and we develop transactional solutions to assist clients in managing risks associated with large construction projects. We have significant experience negotiating and drafting design and construction agreements of all types including design-build contracts; engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contracts; professional service contracts; front end engineering design (FEED) contracts; construction management contracts; equipment supply contracts and purchase orders; and build-out and renovation agreements. We assist our clients in negotiating performance and schedule guarantees designed to ensure project success, and we provide counsel during all phases of design and construction concerning performance and payment bonds, and letters of credit. Mechanic’s, contractor’s and materialman’s liens can create challenges for owners and developers with project finance and title insurance and our clients benefit from our combined real estate and construction expertise when construction lien issues arise.
