Construction Law

“Each of us is carving a stone, erecting a column, or cutting a piece of stained glass in the construction of something much bigger than ourselves.” ~ Adrienne Clarkson

The Firm understands the ultimate goal of a construction program: to pay the agreed upon construction costs, and no more, in exchange for the timely construction of safe and acceptable projects, built in conformance with plans, specifications, and Title 24 requirements. Our attorneys will regularly consult during all construction phases to ensure proper performance by contractors, consultants, and owners.

OMLO attorneys are skilled in the drafting and negotiation of contracts for all elements of construction projects, always keeping our clients’ best interests in mind. If necessary, our attorneys will monitor the project and its players, including the program managers, construction managers, design professionals and all other necessary trade workers to ensure compliance with the contract documents.

On behalf of our clients, OMLO attorneys will also endeavor to pre-qualify general contractors to ensure smooth project implementation with full legal compliance. If a claim is initiated, we make every effort to resolve the claim as quickly as possible without the need for full blown litigation. However, if a claim cannot be informally resolved, or through mediation, the attorneys of the Firm have the experience necessary to aggressively litigate the matter.

In addition, the Firm is experienced in tort and premises liability claims, and is able to handle all other claim types that private companies and public agencies commonly face.
