The Construction law and litigation attorneys at Houston Harbaugh understand the intricacies of construction projects, the scope of work as defined in the plans and specifications, the contractual provisions that govern the parties' roles, and how to resolve disputes as they arise.

Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio

We routinely represent architects and engineers, as well general contractors, subcontractors, developers, owners, suppliers, sureties, and insurers. We have worked on construction projects beginning with early contract negotiation through construction development, including litigating construction disputes relating to large construction and infrastructure developments. We have arbitrated, litigated and mediated construction matters involving:

  • Breach of Contract
  • Delay Claims
  • Design Negligence
  • Request for Equitable Adjustment
  • AIA Construction Contracts
  • Bid Protests
  • Request for Information (RFI)
  • Changer Order (CO)
  • Defective Work/Warranty Claims
  • Mechanics' Lien Claims
  • Pennsylvania Contractor and Subcontractor Act
  • Pennsylvania Prompt Payment Act
  • Bonding/Surety Claims (Payment on Performance)
  • Improper Termination of Subcontractors
  • Permitting

We have also handled administrative and regulatory matters, including environmental compliance and remediation issues.

Houston Harbaugh can manage the legal aspect of every transaction associated with a construction project, from financing to labor relations to project disputes. Should a dispute arise at any stage of the project that cannot be resolved through structured negotiations, we use our skills, experience and network contacts in and about the industry to proceed with mediation, arbitration, or litigation, depending on the circumstances of the matter.
