Reduce Risk, Speed Project Completion

Moye White’s Construction and Development team provides full-service representation of project owners and developers, general contractors, design professionals, subcontractors, and material suppliers in public and private sector commercial, industrial, residential or transportation construction projects. Our team includes attorneys from all three disciplines of the firm: Business, Real Estate, and Litigation, because we understand that construction projects present complex issues that are best handled with collaboration among professionals from each discipline.

Owners and Developers

Our team is uniquely positioned to assist owners and developers long before the shovel hits the dirt. We can help with business entity formation, capital raising, indemnification agreements, insurance programs, and construction financing. When it comes time to acquire or lease property for the project, our experienced real estate and construction attorneys will work with your team to close the deal. Our team can draft and negotiate construction agreements with general contractors, design professionals, and other consultants. When contracts are signed, Moye White’s team can assist with contract administration to ensure compliance and preservation of contractual rights for you and your constituents, while keeping the project on track.

In the event of an unavoidable dispute with an owner, contractor or consultant, our team is well-equipped to enforce contractual and other legal rights through negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and trial including issues with mechanics' liens, bond claims, bad faith claims, delay and defect claims, and insurance coverage.

Design Professionals, General Contractors, Subcontractors, and Suppliers

Moye White has a rich history of representing design professionals, contractors, subcontractors and suppliers in construction projects. We have the experience and skills to draft and negotiate construction agreements and insurance programs, and to identify and control risk before the project gets started. Additionally, our team’s active involvement throughout projects can help resolve payment, workmanship, scheduling, and other issues that can derail projects. When disputes cannot be avoided, we will represent you with experienced trial attorneys that are prepared to address those disputes, the venue is negotiation, mediation, arbitration, or trial.
