The SWRS construction group has over 50 years of combined experience representing general contractors, subcontractors, owners, insurers and sureties in nearly every aspect of the design and construction process, including planning, bidding and award, contract negotiation and drafting and providing construction project counseling and advice. We work with clients on all types of projects, both private and public, including new construction, renovations, highways, bridges, industrial plants, retirement and assisted living communities, schools, hospitals and power plants. We have handled disputes arising from construction projects of all sizes, ranging from multi-million dollar projects that made national headlines to simple home renovations.
We regularly defend and prosecute construction defect cases representing both construction and design professionals. Additionally, SWRS’ construction attorneys have experience with all types of payment issues, including mechanic’s liens, collections and payment-related litigation. When disputes arise before, during or after a project, the attorneys at SWRS work closely with our clients to develop cost-effective and reasonable strategies to resolve disputes through mediation, arbitration or litigation. Our practice extends throughout the Midwest and in both state and federal courts.
In addition to our construction litigation services, we offer advice and counseling to ensure compliance with contractual obligations, industry standards, government regulations and best practices. We conduct seminars and training sessions along with providing advice and counseling on company policies, manuals and training programs.
We are familiar with all of the standard forms of contracts, such as AIA, ConsensusDOCS, EJCDC and government-mandated forms. SWRS’ construction lawyers also draft, modify and review contracts, subcontracts, purchase orders, joint venture agreements, lien waivers, indemnity agreements and other construction-related documents to meet the specific needs of our clients.
