Construction will not only keep an ever-growing part of our population employed, it will also help us keep up with the latest building and engineering technologies available.  However, as with any major sector of our economy, the continued growth of the construction sector will invariably lead to the heightened need for lawyers who are skilled in construction litigation.

  • How does risk-shifting work on a construction project?

  • What are the major causes of action in construction litigation? What are the defenses?
