Construction Law

The PS&E Construction Law team has the experience and is ready to assist developer and construction clients from concept to completion. Our team of attorneys represents construction industry professionals in all phases of a construction project. With extensive experience representing owners, developers, general contractors, sub-contractors, design professionals and material suppliers, the PS&E Construction Law team routinely counsels clients in all aspects of construction projects.  However, we have found that getting us involved in the early phases of any project definitely helps them progress much more smoothly throughout development.


The PS&E Construction Law attorneys have advised clients on multi-million dollar construction projects including: the Paul Brown Stadium Project, the Greene Town Center, the Mall at Fairfield Commons, and numerous school properties including OSFC funded school projects, as well as multiple waste water treatment facilities. Utilizing the team approach, PS&E delivers professional, experienced and cost-effective representation for all of our construction industry clients.
