Real Estate, Construction, and Land Development, oh my!

Legal risks & liabilities don’t need to hamper the profitability of your real estate business.

April 16,2021 | Managing Your Business

Whether you’re in real estate, construction, or land development, construction defects and project delays—and all the contracts and insurance that go with them—can literally make or break your business. Add to that the huge expenses (tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars) incurred by delays and extended financing alone, the complication of re-kajiggering schedules and subcontractors, and dealing with property owners and municipalities. The mountains of paperwork required to complete a typical construction project is involved, to say the least. That’s why we take a different approach.

Our clients know that working with us means putting efficiency first. Our goal is to dial in your business so it runs like a smooth, well-oiled machine. And it all starts with smart, strategic contracts that cut down on unnecessary paperwork and provide relevant protection for your business. We know how to anticipate unfounded claims, “shoot first, aim later” tactics, and liens, so your project progresses without delay.

We’re intimately familiar with the AIA and other industry-standard contracts so we can prepare and negotiate the prime contracts and thorough subcontracts you need to protect your project and your business.

Our subscription model allows us to work closely with you to develop a larger business plan to insulate various projects from one another as necessary, while giving you the power you need in all the contracts you sign. We’ll develop form contracts you can use on all your projects so you’re never surprised by unexpected notice or termination provisions. Did we mention the savings you’ll get on attorney fees? Since we write the contracts you’ll be using to protect your business, preparing agreements is a breeze. We’ll be ready to negotiate and you won’t have to pay anyone to interpret the opposing party’s contract.

We’ve spent over 15 years learning the ins and outs of real estate, construction, and land development, including high-stakes (9-figure) construction litigation. We know the difference between how construction and development projects work in the real world and how they look on paper. We’ve seen the mistakes made by other businesses and know how to preempt them so you can keep your eye on the prize and watch your business grow. We’re legal for the real world, ready to help your business soar. Interested in learning how we can help you develop a legal strategy that protects your business while helping it grow? Schedule a call to learn more.
