Many lawyers says they practice construction law.  At Reed Carter, we actually do.  When the need arises, you need attorneys who have been there and done that in the construction field.  We represent companies in all facets of the construction industry, including general contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, developers, owners, design professionals, and construction managers. This diverse experience allows us see your issue from multiple angles to help you achieve the best result possible.  


In the construction industry, anytime a problem or question arises, the first question that is asked is typically "What does the contract say?"  A well-drafted contract is often the best way to avoid project disputes and can often be the difference if something unfortunate arises.  We analyze and advise clients on contract drafting issues, such as insurance requirements, indemnity provisions, liquidated damages, performance and schedule issues, and payment provisions. From inception, through negotiation, to execution, we work with you to ensure you have a contract that best suits your needs.​
