The A&S Construction Practice Group has decades of experience, both in private practice and in-house, counseling the various parties on how to insulate themselves against events gone awry while incenting their counter-parties to perform and contribute to everyone’s mutual success. 

Our Construction Practice Group regularly handles:

  • ground-up developments for commercial, industrial, and multi-family residential projects
  • repositioning of assets
  • large, complex office tenant fit-out projects
  • architecture, engineering, environmental, and other mission-critical consulting agreements

Construction contracts and consulting agreements are a major value-added component to all real estate transactions, whether ground-up development, financing transactions, or major leases. 

The variety of parties and pressures inherent in these agreements requires a sophisticated and multi-dimensional view of the competing interests to be addressed.  The common theme permeating all these perspectives is for these agreements to find the correct balance and place the correct incentives on all parties for them to achieve their respective goals and contribute to the overall success of the project.

As part of a large, diverse real estate practice, the A&S Construction Practice Group also draws upon its own and its colleagues’ expertise in all aspects of real estate law– from joint ventures to financing, leasing, bankruptcy, land use and more - to ensure that the construction component of a transaction fits seamlessly into all levels of the capital stack.
