For several years, the Firm’s construction practice has been highly ranked in the U.S. News and Best Lawyers annual “Best Law Firms” survey in the areas of construction law, and eminent domain and condemnation law. Sources surveyed said the Firm is their “go-to” for construction matters and recognized the group for their “extensive knowledge and experience in virtually every area of construction law,” as well as their “excellent advisors and dedicated problem solvers” who “give concise and correct counsel in an extremely timely manner.” One client noted the Firm’s “ability to guide clients throughout the course of a construction project in such a way as to avoid the necessity for litigation, but when litigation is necessary, Lane Powell has the knowledge, experience and resources to handle even the largest and most complex cases. As counsel for a public agency involved in billions of dollars of construction, they are the first firm I turn to for assistance.” Another client enthused: “Lane Powell’s adroit handling of mediations has helped our team avoid litigation.
