Construction Law

The Construction Law Group at CGA Law Firm works with owners, contractors, subcontractors and suppliers on a full range of construction issues including contract review and negotiations, resolving disputes and filing or defending mechanic’s liens. We will work with you to manage your risks and protect your rights.

Construction projects are complex and require a well orchestrated team of developers, architects, engineers, contractors, subcontractors and suppliers for success. The construction law team at CGA can help you understand and advise you from the beginning of the project, including pre-bid specification review, project financing (bonds, guarantees, letters of credit and other forms of security), drafting and review of contracts, structuring of complex transactions for development and project execution.

All too often construction projects, no matter how well planned, result in legal disputes. We have represented our construction industry clients as both plaintiffs and defendants. In matters where our clients have made the business judgment to pursue a claim or have been forced to defend claims brought against them, our primary goal is to provide the best legal services available to assist our client in representing its interests through the litigation process.

Our construction law attorneys also advise contractors and subcontractors on Pennsylvania’s Home Improvement Consumer Protection Act (HICPA). This law not only requires registration, but includes specific language required for all contracts. We will review your existing home improvement contracts and draft contracts that comply with HICPA.

Not only are we experienced in counseling you through a variety of issues affecting your construction projects, we are also experienced in providing business planning including entity formation, tax advisement, employment issues, labor negotiations, immigration and real estate transactions.
