Protorae Law’s Architecture, Engineering and Construction Law team has the breadth and depth to help design professionals and construction firms of all sizes with every legal aspect of their business. Whether negotiating AIA or other industry contracts, helping companies buy, sell, or merge their practices, or representing a client in a copyright infringement claim, construction dispute or insurance coverage claim, we take care of our clients’ legal needs so our clients can focus on designing, engineering and building great projects. Our experienced team represents many of the region’s preeminent architecture, engineering and construction industry professionals, providing a practical, business-minded approach to ensure efficient negotiation and completion of transactions.

Our attorneys are equipped to handle regulatory matters, including DPOR proceedings, as well as dispute resolution through mediation and litigation when necessary. In construction law matters, we counsel clients before and after a claim arises in order to mitigate any damages and to formulate a resolution plan which includes contract enforcement issues, change order issues, payment disputes, termination disputes, and delay claims. Our  intellectual property team helps clients proactively protect their IP, and when disputes arise involving ownership and use of architectural and engineering drawings, shared CAD files, and other forms of intellectual property, our team is dedicated to resolving the issue efficiently and effectively for our clients, whether that involves a creative settlement or going to trial.
