What Is a Construction Attorney?

Any five-year-old can tell you how exciting it is to build - but as adults we have more than tinker toys and Legos to choose from. Whether building an apartment complex or a university, the role you play in construction may vary from the construction workers who handle the cranes to the architect who blueprints the building, to the buyer who has a vision of what he wants. You as a lawyer can get in on this primordial human delight, the delight of building cities. How? By handling the legal structure and design.

Making it all happen in the legal sphere is no light endeavor. Anything as weighty as a skyscraper is going to require paying attention to every local and state ordinance, and is going to require a lawyer as apt and brilliant as any architect.

Construction attorneys must know all about building contracts, of course, as well as bonds and sureties, construction and builders, liens, tendering, and construction claims. They've got to be able to handle banks, architects, builders, engineers, and planners. This means that they basically have to know about everything it takes to make a building, and what laws are relevant to making it happen. They have to know how to be problem solvers, because in these kinds of matters endless problems usually come up.

If you would like to take pride in seeing a building as the final achievement of your work, consider being a construction attorney. Let us help. We can help you find a construction job on LawCrossing today!
