Phillips, Spallas and Angstadt's construction practice group has the experience to advise and represent clients on any construction related issue they encounter. We regularly represent owners, developers, contractors in complex, multi-party litigation. Collaborating with our clients' in-house attorneys, we provide our clients a timely legal and monetary evaluation of each complaint. We provide analysis regarding all avenues of resolution from settlement, mediation and arbitration. For those matters where alternative dispute resolution is unsuccessful or not recommended, we have substantial experience and expertise in both state and federal trials and appeals.
In addition, our firm is committed to supporting the momentum of the growing green and sustainable building movement, including helping to resolve potential legal disputes related to the "LEED" rating system. LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. This rating system, administered by the Green Building Certification Institute, was developed to encourage green building practices and applies to new and existing buildings. Our firm has an attorney on staff who is a LEED Accredited Professional ("LEED AP"). To become a LEED AP, one must demonstrate a thorough understanding of green building techniques, the LEED Green Building Rating System, and the certification process.
