Construction Law

Construction Law

Tough representation for a tough industry …

Growing up in a union family in Chicago I met the people who built the city and kept it running.  Tough and hard working people.  Like the industry itself.  Like construction law, too.

I’ve represented some of the largest road builders in Illinois, ready-mix suppliers, underground contractors, and businesses as small as two-man plumbing shops.   I have the experience to understand the legal issues a construction contractor faces in a complex and fast-moving industry. I have also represented the Illinois licensing boards for architecture, professional engineering, structural engineering, and land surveying. This gave me insight and experience into how the trades and professions should intereact.

Construction law:

• Pay claims with owners, contractors and government agencies

• Defectively built projects

• Performance and Payment bond claims

• Bid protests and defective bidding process

• Pre-qualification issues

• Representation before DOT, and State and local agencies

• Labor problems such as ERISA and prevailing wage claims

• Representation of owners, contractors, architects, engineers

What Can I Do for Your Construction Business?

All of the above. You should also have in place relevant contracts for your customers. You also need standardized subcontracts so you can track work you are coordinating.

I also advise my construction contractor clients on setting up and maintaining the proper structure; and help with delineating owner roles. Last, I have helped my construction clients with succession planning and buying/selling a construction business.
