Our Construction Law Blog focuses on legal issues, news, and regulations concerning the construction industry.

The construction and engineering industry is arguably the world’s largest.  It is fast-paced and often governed by strict deadlines, where completing a successful project requires cooperation and teamwork among owners, architects, engineers, contractors, subcontractors, and many others.  The lawyers in our Construction and Engineering practice have a complete understanding of the industry, from the early stages of finance, development, and design through implementation, construction, and project close-out.

Our lawyers draw upon their legal and technical experience to work with clients to minimize disputes and accomplish common project goals on a local, national, and international scale.   Additionally, we partner with our colleagues in other practice areas such as mergers and acquisitions, labor and employment, intellectual property, and immigration to offer our clients a full range of legal services in support of the construction industry.

Many of the group’s lawyers have worked in the construction, engineering, architecture, and building materials industries or in the government agencies that interact with these industries. This practical, real-world experience, combined with the breadth of the practice, allows our lawyers to anticipate, address, and help prevent the myriad of problems that can arise during any phase of a construction project in both the private and public sectors.

Additionally, the substantive knowledge of applicable laws, rules, and regulations possessed by our construction and engineering lawyers, combined with our experience in the industry, enables the firm to deliver high-quality legal services in a personal, results-oriented, and cost-efficient manner. The 2010-2016 U.S. News—Best Lawyers surveys recognized K&L Gates’ Construction and Engineering practice as a national first-tier construction law practice.

Our practice’s reach extends to all corners of the globe with our lawyers having current or completed projects in over 80 countries including the BRIC and several CEE countries.  The scope of this work ranges from complex energy and infrastructure projects to libraries and monuments.  With full-time, dedicated construction lawyers resident in most major American cities, K&L Gates has one of the largest and most geographically diverse construction law practices in the United States.  Our construction lawyers located throughout Western and Eastern Europe, Asia, Australia, and the Middle East round out one of the most diverse and technically skilled practices in the world.
