Construction Law Attorneys

Elliott Lawson & Minor P.C. represents general and subcontractors, owners, lenders, design professionals and suppliers in southwestern Virginia and northeastern Tennessee. Our representation extends to private construction and public construction projects.

Because of the complexity of construction law disputes, the philosophy of our firm is to seek early resolution of our clients’ construction contract issues. The longer issues remain unresolved, the more expensive and difficult it becomes to build client appropriate solutions. For that reason, whether the client’s interests will be best served by negotiation, mediation, arbitration or litigation, we explore with the client the legal strategies for resolving its disputes early in our representation.

Our representation of clients in construction industry litigation extends to the state and federal trial and appellate courts of Virginia and Tennessee. We frequently assist out-of-state counsel with their construction industry clients’ issues in the twin state region.

Among the construction issues in which the firm has experience are:

  • Construction defects
  • Mechanics and materialmen’s lien claims
  • Bond claims
  • Delay disputes
  • Contractor licensing
  • Construction project permitting
  • Public contract bid and procurement
  • Design defects
  • Interference claims
