Foley & Mansfield’s Construction Group represents clients across the industry spectrum, including contractors, owners, developers, subcontractors, design professionals, and financial institutions in a myriad of projects. Our lawyers also serve as panel counsel for prominent insurance carriers who underwrite the gamut of construction risk.

Many of our attorneys possess engineering and scientific backgrounds and experience. This allows us to provide comprehensive and cost-effective legal representation, as we fully appreciate engineering analysis. In addition, we are able to better manage and limit the use of typically expensive, outside expert assistance.

We take a creative approach to solving problems and reducing expense. Whenever possible, we will assist you in developing procedures to limit litigation, as well as review contracts and purchase orders, set up claims tracking systems, and provide guidance on record maintenance and administration.

Foley & Mansfield attorneys can help you identify a potential claim and assist you in formulating it for tender. Many of our clients have adopted our approach to construction defect claim resolution. We often bring parties together to resolve claims before they evolve into expensive, time-consuming litigation.

However, when the situation calls for litigation, you want superb counsel on your side. Foley & Mansfield represents clients in major construction related disputes in more than 20 states and has the experience to handle a broad spectrum of matters - from contract disputes to product defect and negligent design claims.
