Architects

 

The design industry is challenging, dynamic, and competitive, and it demands attorneys that understand construction projects from the architect’s perspective. Our firm understands the design industry and the risks and problems architects face. Because of LGWM’s comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the entire design and construction process, our design attorneys provide superior counsel regarding the complex issues that might be encountered on a wide variety of construction projects. This enables our attorneys to work proactively with clients involved in litigation in order to achieve the best possible result. We work toward cost-effective solutions that meet our clients' unique and specific needs. The firm's design defense attorneys are active in industry related organizations, including the Associated Builders and Contractors and the American Institute of Architects, that enable them to stay up to date with the most recent trends.
