Construction Attorney Job Description

A construction attorney is a position for the architect at heart, for not only does a building need to be built out of physical materials, but it must be built conceptually out of contracts, bonds, sureties, liens, and all sorts of agreements with financial institutions. Entire teams of people must work together to make a building happen, and the city or jurisdiction where it is located must allow it. A construction lawyer is necessary to handle all these legal issues. Transactional law is key, but so is knowing everything that goes into making a building, including every level and layer of the process that gets teams together to work together, make contracts and organize their labor.

I was incredibly happy with the site. I thought it was very easy to use; had significantly more postings than any other site (or combination of sites); and provided a lot of useful information. (the number, and caliber, of job postings). Exactly what I was looking for – I have 5 years’ experience and was looking for a lateral move or an in-house position, and that’s exactly what I found!
