Construction Law

Our construction law practice is composed of our corporate/commercial lawyers, our commercial real estate lawyers, and our litigators.

We regularly represent various construction industry entities, including owners, general contractors, construction managers, design/builders, subcontractors, suppliers, financial institutions, engineers, and other design professionals.

We regularly advise on all types of financing arrangements, including structuring of loan transactions, loan and security requirements, inter-creditor arrangements, priority issues, regulatory compliance, and the preparation of loan agreements, commitment letters and requisite security documentation.

Our litigators have considerable experience representing our clients when pursuing and defending all types of construction claims and defences, including breach of contract, claims for lien, delay claims, breach of trust claims, performance and labour and material payment bond claims, negotiating and settling disputes through arbitration, and appearing at trial and appellant levels of court.

Those involved in the construction industry face financial risks not encountered in other commercial contexts.  As such, there are unique protections granted through the Construction Lien Act.  In order to best enforce your various rights as a contractor, subcontractor, supplier, owner/developer, or design professional, you need expert legal advice.
