The Real Estate and Development Team at McGuire, Wood & Bissette knows that project details matter and make the difference in a successful project. All construction projects, whether large or small, involve elements of contracting, planning, designing, permitting, zoning, financing and building. Managing all of these elements is challenging. Projects can last for months and even years; they often involve diverse parties, all with competing interests; and the parties have to manage tight schedules, detailed plans and specifications and timely payments.
All of these variables can create a complex and combustible situation ripe for dispute. Our Real Estate and Development Team works to prevent those issues on the front end by negotiating and drafting your design and construction agreements in a manner that clearly defines the roles and responsibilities of all the parties involved for the life of the project.
You receive the experience, expertise and abilities you need to work effectively with the contractors, subcontractors, material suppliers, design professionals and property owners from a project’s inception through its completion. If and when construction disputes arise, our Real Estate and Development Team is up to the challenge of protecting your interests through:
- Construction contract preparation and enforcement
- Lien preparation, perfection and execution
- Alternative dispute resolution
- Construction defect litigation
- Licensing requirements
- Permitting and zoning considerations
