Construction Law Resources
Any construction project is a “problem in progress.” What separates successful owners, contractors and subcontractors from the others is their ability to effectively manage those problems.
Knowing this, can there be any doubt that one of the most important qualities to look for in a construction law attorney is problem-solving experience?
The ability to understand the exciting, yet complex nature of today’s construction industry, to anticipate potential obstacles and to effectively solve problems sets the construction law attorneys at Kegler, Brown, Hill & Ritter apart.
At Kegler Brown, our representation as general counsel for numerous international construction trade associations, including the American Subcontractors Association (ASA), the Association of the Wall and Ceiling Industry (AWCI), and the National Ground Water Association (NGWA), has provided unparalleled experience and has placed our attorneys on the cutting edge of industry developments.
Whether representing subcontractors, contractors, owners or design professionals, our ability to navigate the maze of complex legal issues involved with major construction projects, from start to finish, has enabled our attorneys to successfully:
- serve as project counsel on Ohio's largest highway, school, stadium and arena projects
- negotiate and draft well-accepted trade association contract documents
- write and pass important legislation such as the Prompt Payment Act and Fairness in Construction Contracting Act
- win the landmark competitive bidding case in Ohio
- establish the Spearin doctrine in Ohio
- defend and prosecute complex multi-million dollar claims in all venues on a regular basis
