Construction is fraught with risk, but the successful management of that risk can lead to great returns. Whether you are an owner, a design professional, general contractor, subcontractor, material supplier, insurer or surety; involved in commercial or residential, industrial, institutional or oil and gas, the construction industry is complex, and Field Law’s experienced lawyers can assist you.
We represent a variety of clients ranging in size from single owner businesses to major institutions and international EPC contractors. Our clients include owners, design professionals, general contractors, subcontractors, material suppliers, insurers and sureties. At Field Law, our team focuses on helping you manage risk from the inception of a project through to completion. We have the experience and practicality to assist you with your needs, whatever they may be.
We at Field Law are familiar with the risks that you face. We are detail-oriented and have an in-depth understanding of the construction process. We work across a variety of construction related trades and industries, including excavation, mechanical, electrical, oil and gas pipelines, civil and road works, electricity transmission and infrastructure.
At Field Law, construction law is about identifying, managing and overcoming risk to get the job done. Design, workmanship, materials, schedule, cost, payment, delay, acceleration, weather, liens, labour, unforeseen conditions, extras and cash flow -- all present risk for each of the participants in a construction project. 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 arise, and construction litigation is complex, document intensive and expensive. We recognize that every situation is different and what works for one client may not be the solution for another. We look to identify our client’s needs and tailor a strategy and solution that will obtain the most timely and cost-effective result. 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.
