We begin all engagements with an effort to fully understand and appreciate the client’s interests and needs, and we then use our knowledge and experience to partner with the client in pursuing the most economical and least burdensome path to achieving the client’s goals.  Whether you need assistance with meeting state contractor licensure requirements, pursuing or defending public bid law challenges, enforcing or cancelling private project liens or public project claims, negotiating contracts, or resolving disputes, Chaffe McCall’s construction section has the experience to provide representation tailored to meet your needs and achieve your objectives.

In disputed matters, our seasoned attorneys have advocated our clients’ interests before single arbitrators and multiple-member panels.  We have also successfully litigated a wide variety of actions in both state and federal courts, ranging from two-party disputes to large, multi-party complex litigation.  We have also represented clients in construction labor and employment law matters, including those involving collective bargaining.  Some of Chaffe McCall’s recent successes have included cases involving:

  • Mechanical design
