Aronberg Goldgehn attorneys have achieved exceptional results for our many construction industry clients, including general contractors and sub-contractors, architects, engineers, developers, owners, lenders and suppliers. We have lawyers who understand construction and the construction industry.  In the construction law area, we handle cases ranging in size and complexity from straightforward mechanics lien matters to multi-faceted construction defect or failure cases. We have advised clients involved in diverse construction projects, ranging in type from road and bridge construction to propane gas filling, and from storage facilities to skyscrapers. We have provided litigation counsel on some very high profile and visible projects.

We also regularly provide non-litigation counseling to our construction industry clients, including drafting and negotiating contracts, advising on contract compliance and payment issues and project documentation review. We have handled investigations before OSHA, the U.S. Department of Labor and various states’ Departments of Labor, and have defended clients in matters before the EEOC and Illinois Department of Human Rights.

Our Construction Law Practice often draws upon the collective and varied experience of the firm’s other practice areas, including real estate, tax, insurance, labor, employment, insurance, occupational health and safety, and bankruptcy.
