Construction Law Services

Harrison Law Group was founded over 15 years ago and was built upon the foundation of providing high quality legal services to construction professionals at all stages of the building process – corporate formation; MBE, DBE and WBE certification; bids and bid protests; contract negotiation; impact and delay claim analysis; and dispute resolution. Over the years, Harrison Law Group has handled thousands of matters for hundreds of different clients, including owners, architects, engineers, sureties, general contractors, construction managers, subcontractors and material suppliers.

Our seasoned attorneys, who collectively have over 50 years of experience advising construction professionals, also have a strong working knowledge of design and construction upon which they rely when considering our clients' legal interests and the economic realities of specific projects. Our knowledge is the collective product of a large and diverse client base, an extensive range of commercial, governmental, industrial, and residential projects, and our involvement in professional associations and industry trade groups.

The unique field of construction law requires practitioners to utilize a collection of legal negotiation, mediation and advocacy skills. When negotiating complex construction documents or when presenting claims and disputes to judges, juries, mediators, and arbitrators, attorneys are required to analyze and apply applicable law to the wide range of complex technical and factual issues unique to each project.
