Goldman represents all participants in the construction process: owners, bidders, design professionals, general contractors, subcontractors, materials and equipment suppliers, and lenders in addressing pre-design and pre-construction business planning, drafting project agreements, tailoring standard industry form construction contracts, permit applications, project management issues and the prosecution and defense of construction claims.
The firm’s Construction Law and Dispute Resolution Practice Group lawyers are skilled in the transactional aspects of construction projects. The group has addressed issues associated with development and construction in all phases, including organization of business entities for construction and design/build agreements, drafting and reviewing bid proposals, contract documents, obtaining licenses and permits, bid and procurement disputes, record development, and lien and other claims. We understand key contractual, technical, regulatory, scheduling/critical path analysis, and cost issues involved in construction projects and disputes. We advise clients in a wide range of projects, including residential projects, infrastructure projects, including ports and airports, roads and highways, train stations, and utilities such as electric, water, gas, and telecommunications facilities, as well as office and commercial buildings, and industrial process facilities.
Our team of construction litigators stands ready to apply its extensive experience in the resolution of all manner of construction disputes, including payment and performance disputes, surety and insurance disputes, and disputes involving defective design and construction work.
GAC also regularly assists our contractor clients in the avoidance, prosecution and defense of claims ranging from the collection of contract payments to complex and sophisticated construction matters such as those associated with delay, disruption and acceleration of construction projects. When disputes and disagreements arise in the context of construction projects, we draw on our extensive Puerto Rico and federal litigation experience to effectively pursue client interests. Our practice group has also represented clients in litigation at all levels involving contested building and zoning matters, purchase agreement and lease contract disputes, mechanics’ liens-type claims, delay claims, change order claims, personal injury claims, and structural failure disputes. We also represent clients through alternative dispute resolution methods, including arbitration, mediation, and settlement. Before and after disputes are resolved, we conduct analyses to determine how such problems can be avoided and more effectively resolved when they do arise.
