Proven Business Lawyers And Commercial Litigators

Prevention And Resolution Of Construction Disputes

Since 1996, The Cohn Law Firm, LLC, has represented landowners, builders, developers, contractors, subcontractors, engineers and other parties in construction law. Our depth of experience helps us effectively protect our clients’ interests, especially during challenging economic times.

Construction law is a highly specific legal area that requires an attorney to understand a great deal of technical information about both construction itself and the construction industry. At The Cohn Law Firm, LLC, we have developed extensive knowledge of construction law, including legal parameters for large construction projects. We understand the rules and industry standards for developing and building shopping centers, office buildings, industrial facilities and other large projects, as well as high-end residential properties, such as luxury condominium conversions.

Our law practice addresses the practical issues that make the difference between a project moving forward smoothly or becoming bogged down by disputes. Our attorneys provide sound counsel and representation in construction law to help our clients effectively protect their rights.
