Over the decades, Goldberg & Connolly has focused on all aspects of the construction industry representing all construction industry participants, such as general contractors, "heavy highway" or "civil" contractors and "vertical building" contractors, construction managers, public owners and government agencies, private owners and developers, subcontractors, sureties, construction suppliers and manufacturers and design professionals.
We are prepared to protect the rights and interests of construction companies and professionals, and have extensive experience dealing with a broad range of construction law-related disputes including, among others, bid protests and procurement, project delay and/or acceleration, extra work and scope interpretation, change orders, differing site conditions, "design" versus "performance" specification controversies, surety takeover and completion controversies, terminations "for cause" and "for convenience" and contract closeouts and final payment.
Additional services include:
- M/WBE & DBE Formation, Certification & Compliance
- Getting Paid
- Additional Construction Related Services
The Construction Practice Group, to which most of the firm's personnel and resources are devoted, draws from many years of experience in the construction industry. The firm's attorneys benefit from their prior involvement in both public and private sector construction. From bid prequalification and protests, to contract interpretation and claims prosecution, the firm works closely with its clients to either prevent disputes or to develop creative solutions to resolve them. If necessary, the firm will aggressively and effectively litigate on behalf of its clients. We begin every case with a specifically tailored litigation plan designed to obtain our client’s defined business objectives.
We are prepared to protect the rights and interests of construction companies from issues as varied as Labor Law and Prevailing Wage investigations, to "design build" project delivery-related issues, to delay claims. Many times we are instrumental in developing techniques that provide solutions for our clients simply getting paid that to which it is entitled in a fast and timely manner.
The firm also prides itself on its long-standing relationships with public owners actively involved in construction in the New York metropolitan area. Communication with the policy and decision makers of these agencies is an invaluable avenue for creative, cost-effective, problem-solving. Often, difficulties between contractor and owner/field management personnel become too "personal." Having the ability to reach out to upper-level management in most agencies can mean the difference between the amicable resolution of a dispute or years of costly litigation. Often the application of a level-headed, common sense approach based on years of experience can be determinative.
