Construction


 PROJECT DELAYS OR WORK STOPPAGE DUE TO CONSTRUCTION-RELATED LEGAL ISSUES CAN BE A NIGHTMARE. 
Let our expert law team help you navigate the complexities of construction law.


There is no substitute for having a well-informed and seasoned law firm on your side when legal issues arise during construction projects of all types. WAW recognizes that owners, architects, contractors, engineers, insurers and others in the construction industry face multiple liabilities for a single issue or event, therefore our construction practice covers many areas of financial and commercial, industrial and residential construction work.
