Construction & Development


Developing Well-Built Relationships

To complete a construction project, you need a strong foundation, precise planning and a team dedicated to the task. Brooks Pierce uses the same tools to build comprehensive strategies for our clients in the construction industry. Our attorneys understand the unique challenges that contractors, architects, developers and designers face. We are proud to provide experienced counsel at every point in the life cycle of a construction project.

Brooks Pierce attorneys have a wealth of experience representing all segments of the construction industry, including both government and private sector projects, including hotels, restaurants, gyms, healthcare, marine and general commercial projects. Whether you are trying to secure permitting, comply with regulation, or resolve a dispute between contractors, you need a team behind you with industry-specific experience.  

Services include:

  • Securing Real Estate and Financing Our team can provide legal counsel on all steps of the real estate process including negotiating the purchase of land and overseeing the closing process. We can also advise on project financing and navigating the lending process.
  • Front-End Contracting Our team represents and advises owners, lenders, developers, design professionals, construction managers, general contractors and subcontractors in drafting and negotiating contracts for all types of commercial and institutional projects. We understand that contract negotiation is principally about risk allocation and work to ensure our clients do not take on any unnecessary risks and are properly compensated for the risks they do take.
  • Dispute Resolution Unfortunately, even with the best written contracts, sometimes things go awry. Brooks Pierce represents owners, contractors and subcontractors in disputes during all phases of a construction project, including negotiating change orders, filing or disputing liens and challenging or defending payment and performance bond claims and other claims that may arise during a project.
  • Litigation While we first seek to resolve issues through negotiation and arbitration, going to court is frequently an option. When litigation is the best option, we fight on behalf of our clients’ interests in state and federal courts.

How can we develop a well-built relationship with you?
