Construction Litigation

Sometimes construction law requires more intensive action than simply drafting permits and legal documents. When you need a construction attorney who is prepared to go to court to handle a dispute or an issue requiring a court hearing, Kelly Legal Group will fight for you. Not all situations can be settled out of court and you need a strong advocate on your side who has industry-specific expertise.

Preventative Practices

While Kelly Legal Group is ready to go to court if necessary, that can often be avoided with preventative practices. A construction lawyer can anticipate possible conflicts and issues that could develop into larger problems and take measures to avoid them. In some cases arbitration or mediation can resolve an issue before it goes to court, saving all parties time and funds by resolving out of court.


One of the most common needs for a construction lawyer is to draft, review, or terminate a contract. Construction contractors get their name from the fact that a contractual agreement is required to do business. Contracts tend to be long and use complex language, which can make them difficult to understand. A lawyer can interpret and approve all contracts to be sure all of the terms are fair and understood by all parties.

If there is a need to terminate a contract or if there is a price escalation, you’ll need a construction attorney to handle the process. Many contracts include termination or escalation clauses, which makes it perfectly legal to do so, but it’s best to proceed with the help of a lawyer to prevent liability.
