Our construction litigation team has a wealth of courtroom experience that has earned us the reputation as one of the leading practices in the country. We bring in-depth and technical understanding of the construction field to the table, which allows us to provide effective solutions for a broad range of construction-related matters.

For decades, our litigation team has represented clients in major construction and real estate projects throughout the United States, such as the Toyota Music Factory in Irving, Texas, the Millennium Towers Project in San Francisco and SH130 Concession Company in Texas.
