Construction

Overview

The lawyers of the Goulston & Storrs Construction Group bring to clients a great breadth and depth of experience pertinent to a wide array of construction projects and related legal issues.

We provide nationwide, comprehensive services related to construction matters, and that is very unusual. Because we have handled construction-related matters in many jurisdictions, we have a well-developed network of relevant consultants, professionals, government contacts and local counsel who can add value to our work for the benefit of our clients.

As part of our comprehensive service, we offer to clients the ability to solve construction-related issues involving accessibility laws, bankruptcy, environmental problems, mechanic’s liens, surety claims and project takeovers, contractor claims, building technology failures, financing, insurance, land use, taxes, and other matters affecting a wide variety of projects.

The construction projects with which we have experience are wide-ranging, spanning across many types of facilities used in many commercial industries, as well as public facilities, educational and medical facilities, and public-private projects.

We also have on our team a number of lawyers who have served in leadership positions in the organized bar, and who been recognized by the peer-rated American College of Real Estate Lawyers. In fact, one of our lawyers created the Construction subgroup of the Boston Bar Association in 1999 to further the professional study and development of construction-related law. 

Because of our broad experience representing many types of clients, we understand all of the parts to a construction project or construction-related legal issue. We understand the perspective of the owner, developer, landlord, tenant, designer, engineer, contractor, and pertinent regulators.
