Calfee’s construction transaction services include drafting and providing assistance negotiating the terms of essentially every type of construction contract and other related documents, which are used in relation to various project delivery methods. The numerous types of contracts and documents we have prepared and negotiated on behalf of clients include the following:
- General Contractor Agreements

In addition to providing construction document drafting and negotiation services, Calfee’s construction transaction services also include counseling and assisting clients with respect to other issues relating to construction projects and transactions. For instance, Calfee frequently counsels and advises clients about project planning and development issues as well as performance and administration issues relating to construction projects.
Calfee’s construction dispute resolution services include representing our clients in relation to claims and disputes that arise out of and relate to construction-related projects, transactions, and/or products. Calfee’s Construction attorneys have extensive experience prosecuting and defending the claims of clients in federal courts, state courts, arbitrations, and mediations in Ohio and other jurisdictions. We also are adept and experienced at assisting our clients with addressing and often resolving construction-related disputes before a lawsuit or other formal dispute resolution process is commenced.
Calfee’s core team of construction attorneys is augmented and further supported by experienced attorneys from other Calfee practice groups, including Calfee’s Real Estate Group, Public Finance Group, Environmental Group, and Government Relations Group.
