Federal, State & Local Public Construction and Procurement

Our attorneys have handled legal matters involving federal, state and local construction projects. We understand the unique statutory and regulatory requirements that impact public procurement. We have represented contractors, subcontractors and suppliers on federal project disputes in the United States Court of Federal Claims, federal contract appeals boards and United States District Courts. Regarding state projects we have litigated construction claims under state procurement schemes before administrative law judges and in the state courts. Our attorneys have represented cities as well as contractors in municipal construction disputes.

Enhancing the Prospects for Contractors to Have Insurance Coverage for Their Subcontractors’ Defective Work

When a construction contractor engages in a construction project, it generally purchases a commercial general liability policy (“CGL”) to broadly cover it and, frequently, the property owner for claims that might arise during the course of construction. These insurance contracts are standard forms issued by the Insurance Services Office (“ISO”) that cover accidental damage to property or personal injury claims.
