Construction Law

With the addition of the Wulfsberg team on September 1, 2014, Burke is now home to a nationally-recognized construction law and litigation practice, representing public and private clients in all facets of the construction process.  Our senior construction lawyers have for over forty years handled complex construction litigation and arbitrations, in jurisdictions throughout California, the United States, as well as internationally, including, where appropriate, mediation and all forms of alternative dispute resolution.  We have handled cases involving virtually every type of public or private construction project, including power plants, highways, hospitals, schools, jails, parking facilities, libraries, hotels, shopping malls, sports facilities, wastewater facilities, pipelines, and many more.  Outside of litigation, our construction law practice includes extensive experience and expertise in construction project documentation, regulatory compliance, bidding procedures, performance and payment bonds, claims handling, and project administration.
