For architects, engineers, and other design professionals, projects are about more than the bottom line. It’s about marrying form and function to enhance the built environment and using their technical and aesthetic training to bring their clients’ visions to life.
Across the spectrum of project and practice types, architects and engineers vary in their degree of focus on form, function, data, art, and science—but they all bring a profoundly creative sensibility to their projects that our lawyers strive to factor into their contracts.
From standard of care to professional liability insurance to ownership of instruments of service to waivers and limits of claims and damages, we employ our deep understanding of the problems design professionals face and enable our clients to focus on designing the projects that inspire them and their own clients.
Design professionals sometimes face claims arising from their design, and from their involvement in the construction phase of a project. We strive to prevent these disputes from happening in the first place through smart contracting and ongoing risk management counseling. If a dispute is unavoidable, we work to resolve it quickly and efficiently, always keeping in mind the importance of protecting our clients’ professional reputations and relationships. From design defect claims to payment disputes to professional licensing hearings, we’ve seen it all, and we help guide our clients toward a path to daylight.
We work with Architects, Engineers, Landscape Architects, Interior Designers, and Surveyors.
