Spencer Fane LLP Logo


Spencer Fane’s Construction Team represents developers, contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, materialmen, builders and owners in disputes arising from construction and real property development. Our experience ranges from multi-million-dollar construction fraud cases to mechanic’s lien and contractor bond claims. In addition to representing construction clients in resolving disputes, we provide ongoing guidance to our clients who are involved in the business of construction and real estate development.

The group brings broad experience in all areas of the construction industry: liens, bonding, contracting, change orders subcontract issues, construction defects, design-build issues, pay when paid clauses, retainage, and punch list disputes. We offer additional expertise in project delivery systems, contractual and environmental risks assessments, differing site conditions, project documentation and termination, change in design issues, delays, and toxic tort matters. We can qualify and prepare a construction entity to do business, assist with contract drafting and negotiating, assess contract risk analysis, and provide estate planning for the successful contractor.

As attorneys and counselors, this group has great depth of experience trying, arbitrating, and mediating construction law disputes. Our attorneys find that a reasonable approach can often lead to early settlement and an amicable resolution of disputes.
