Cynics have described a construction project as "a hole in the ground spouting lawsuits". Given the complexity of modern construction and the level of risk associated with even the most modest project, it is often a wonder that anything is built.
We at Field Law are familiar with the risks that you face, whether you be an owner, design professional, general contractor, subcontractor, material supplier, insurer or surety, because we have experience representing each of these ranging in size from single owner businesses to major institutions and international EPC contractors.

We emphasize risk management from the beginning - tender and award, contractual risk allocation and insurance/surety arrangements all furnish opportunities to allocate risk and to protect the project and its participants from the unforeseen.
Of course, disputes and issues inevitably arise, and our litigation group is well versed and experienced in the range of dispute resolution mechanisms available to reach expeditious and cost effective resolution: negotiation, mediation, judicial dispute resolution, arbitration and litigation. We are practical problem solvers who appreciate that every dollar spent subtracts directly from the bottom line and that the risk/reward level for construction litigation demands a hard-nosed, proactive response.
