Construction law has been a significant part of our practice since Robinson Bradshaw was founded in 1960, and we continue to maintain a deep bench of attorneys experienced in assisting clients through all phases of construction projects. From pre-contract and construction document negotiation, through litigating payment and defect claims during and after completion, our firm works with owners, contractors and design professionals to achieve excellent results on each project.

We regularly handle matters that involve the drafting, review and negotiation of contracts; licensing; competitive bidding; mechanic’s liens; bonding; and risk management and insurance coverage. Our clients include owners, developers, general contractors, architectural and engineering firms, construction managers, and specialty contractors and suppliers. Our construction lawyers present regularly at seminars and provide frequent updates on construction topics of interest to our clients. Robinson Bradshaw attorney Robert C. Sink is co-author of "North Carolina Construction Law."

In addition to our transactional experience, we litigate construction claims in state and federal courts and in mediation and arbitration. These cases routinely concern disputes involving tens or hundreds of millions of dollars and multiple parties.

Our construction clients also benefit from the breadth of our firm’s practice. We are well-positioned to assist with other legal issues that affect projects which are beyond the capacity of smaller or single-focus law firms. Such issues include environmental questions, economic development incentives, tax consequences, regulatory restrictions, real estate issues and employment-related concerns.
