Advising Owners and Developers on Construction Law

Even the simplest construction project will often involve multiple parties whose varying responsibilities and risks are outlined in a web of contracts. The bigger the project, the more complexity is introduced into the agreements.

In New York City, nation wide and around the world Our construction attorneys have handled very high-profile projects that have an exceptional level of complexity and scrutiny.

We work on rehab projects and projects built from the ground up.

Our recent experience includes high-profile, highly complex projects — the extensive expansion and rehabilitation of The Museum of Modern Arts and the ground-up building of Yankee Stadium are just two of such projects. We have also worked with local counsel on projects in Mexico, India and China, and construction projects of all size throughout the U.S.

The construction development lawyers at Wachtel Missry negotiate and draft contracts with contractors, suppliers, architects and engineers.

We have a knowledge of construction and the law.

Our law firm has an in-depth understanding of the realities and risks owners and developers face every day. Our attorneys work closely with our clients so that we will know their objectives as we draft the legal documents necessary for cost-effective, efficient project development. At every step in each negotiation and every document, we protect our clients' interests.

Our experience has been built over the past 25 years in one of the toughest construction environments — New York City. When necessary our construction attorneys work closely with our litigators, real estate attorneys, and land use professionals.
