At Gray Reed & McGraw, we believe that effectively representing construction businesses requires an industry based practice. It’s not enough to know the law—you need to know the industry, how it operates and how a project progresses. The Construction Law practice group consists of attorneys, including three who were named 2018 Rising Stars by Texas Super Lawyers Magazine (a Thomson Reuters company), with the experience and the expertise essential to effectively assisting you with the difficult and diverse issues that arise from conception through completion of even the most complex construction projects and business operations.
As a full service firm, Gray Reed is uniquely positioned to effectively represent and counsel construction industry businesses beyond routine or the most complex construction matters. We can assist with every aspect of operations, including: Corporate, Labor and Employment, Tax, Real Estate, Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation, Bankruptcy, and Commercial Litigation Matters. We represent our construction clients “entirely”, conveniently acting as their “one-stop shop” for legal services.
Our attorneys provide a broad range of services to contractors, state and local governments, and private parties engaged in construction transactions, dispute resolution and government procurement. We assist construction industry clients with acquisitions, project development and finance, contract formation, project management and “real time” advice, claims preparation and resolution, mechanics liens and payment bond claims, open account collections, OSHA, regulatory and licensing matters, labor and employment issues, environment compliance, MBE/WBE/DBE requirements, suretyship, mediation, arbitration and alternative dispute resolution proceedings, and litigation.
