Our Construction and Remediation attorneys provide strategic legal counsel to project owners of residential, office and industrial facilities as well as restaurants and hotels throughout Southern California. We advise project owners and boards of directors in a wide array of construction, commercial and real property related matters including construction risk management. Our experience in handling a wealth of transactions and disputes makes us well-versed in the legal issues arising within each and every phase of a construction project. Whether negotiating and drafting new construction or repair contracts for use in hiring contractors, construction managers or design professionals, or representing clients through all facets of litigation, we work to exceed our clients’ expectations while protecting their legal rights.
Our team of experienced remediation and construction lawyers work with the owners in anticipating costly problems such as excessive change orders and relocation claims. We have vast experience in reconstruction of occupied buildings. Remediation poses unique challenges involving relocation of owners or tenants for hours, days and sometimes months. Epsten Grinnell & Howell, APC has been involved in some of the most complex and largest reconstruction projects in the County.
