Engineers

 

Engineering disciplines are highly specialized and complex. Engineers need attorneys who understand their specific discipline and the risks and problems they experience during the design and construction phases of projects. LGWM understands these risks and brings its unique experience and knowledge regarding the engineering profession to meet these challenges.

 

LGWM works with its engineering clients from the design phase through construction - - sometimes even years after project completion - - to best position them should litigation arise. We work proactively with our engineering clients to find a cost-effective solution to their unique problems.

 

LGWM has represented engineers throughout the United States, including in Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Nevada and Tennessee. The firm's attorneys have represented engineers in mediations, arbitrations, and in trials at both the State and Federal level.
