The OBT construction law practice group assists
clients with resolution of legal issues in the design and
construction of industrial, marine, commercial, public works, heavy
civil construction and residential projects. OBT’s construction lawyers negotiate, draft and review

negotiated work. During
the performance of a project, our lawyers assist clients with bid
disputes, contractor default, delay and disruption to the schedule,
owner default and owner-caused delay, force majeure, changes in site
conditions, mechanics and material man's liens, defective work
issues, defective design issues, property and casualty losses, state
and federal regulatory issues, the change order process including
extra work claims, scope of work claims, termination issues,
performance bond and completion issues, payment bond claims,
liquidated damages claims and warranty claims.
If disputes arise that cannot be resolved, OBT has extensive
experience with mediation, arbitration and litigation of claims.

that are members of the Forum Committee on the Construction Industry
