The attorneys of Eaton Peabody have years of experience representing a broad spectrum of clients involved in the construction industry. Our clients include contractors, suppliers, architects, and owners as well as state-wide construction trade associations.
Our construction attorneys not only have legal experience that covers all aspects of the construction process, they have practical experience including hands-on management experience in the industry prior to joining the legal profession.
Our construction attorneys regularly assist owners, contractors and architects in the preparation and negotiation of contracts for everything from the design of the project, to owner-contractor agreements, subcontracts and material supply agreements. These projects range from custom homes to large scale industrial projects.
We also provide advice to our construction industry clients on business organization, succession planning, employment law, tax matters and other issues faced by businesses in Maine.
We also have extensive experience in resolving disputes, including payment claims, construction defect claims, delay and disruption claims, and mechanics lien claims. In addition to representing the parties in disputes, our attorneys are frequently requested by other members of the industry and legal profession to serve as mediators or arbitrators in construction disputes.
