Construction Law & Litigation

A Firm Built on the Construction Industry

Since 1988, we have been pleased to practice construction law and litigation throughout South Carolina. Our roots run deep in the construction community, and our decades of experience with all types of construction law makes us uniquely qualified to handle matters relating to all phases of the construction process, including bidding on a project, drafting contracts and subcontracts, avoiding delays and non-payment, securing payment and dealing with defective construction or claims of defective construction.

When it comes to defective construction, we represent property owners who are facing the fallout from defective construction, as well as contractors, subcontractors, material suppliers and design professionals who are fighting claims of defective construction. No matter which scenario applies to you, we listen to you, seek to understand your goals and leverage our experience, knowledge-base and talent to tailor a response according to your specific set of circumstances.

Road Construction and Port Projects

Road construction is a thriving industry in South Carolina, thanks in part to the state’s focus on infrastructure improvement and the growing number of counties implementing sales tax programs. If you are involved with road construction or port projects, we can help ensure your rights are protected from start to finish. We have extensive experience with large-scale paving projects for commercial properties and road construction, and we have an in-depth understanding of SCDOT specifications, which are lengthy, detailed and complex.
