Beyond the Scope — A Construction Litigation Blog

The construction litigation blog focuses on legal issues affecting businesses in the construction industry.  Having worked in this industry for many years, the construction litigators represent general contractors, subcontractors, and material suppliers. Our clients range from regional landscaping companies to electrical suppliers to Fortune 100 contractors.

We have found that in designing and building new commercial or residential properties, contingency plans are key.  Similarly, the construction litigation blog is written to illustrate options and identify best legal practices for business owners in the construction field.  Our posts will be broad and varied, from labor and employment litigation to detailed documentation issues involved in collections cases.  We are pleased to share our knowledge of the construction industry with you through the Beyond the Scope — A Construction Litigation Blog.
