Construction & Infrastructure

“Proactive, not reactive” is our philosophy with all clients, but it’s that philosophy that has made us internationally known for our construction practice. Patel Burkhalter Law Group believes that client education and training is the first step in building a solid, profitable business and in avoiding disputes and litigation. From negotiating and drafting of construction contracts to educating clients through day-to-day review of projects, contracts, issues and project documents, the practitioners at Patel Burkhalter Law Group are experts in development and construction.

Although we believe in strategically avoiding disputes, we have extensive experience in litigation and dispute resolution before arbitration panels, administrative agencies and litigation in state, federal and appellate courts. We’ve represented clients on both the state (multiple states) and federal levels, and we have represented commercial general contractors, specialty subcontractors, design and engineering professionals and product suppliers. Our attorneys have extensive expertise in a wide range of issues that affect construction companies in all phases of a project, including:

  • Pre-bid strategy and negotiations
  • Bid and proposal preparation
  • Contract negotiation and drafting
  • Award controversies
  • Performance-related disputes and claims
  • Collections issues
  • Claims avoidance
  • Minority certifications
  • Joint venture agreements and operating agreement
  • Project management and advisory services
  • Litigation and dispute resolution
