Overview

With a nationally recognized construction law practice, Tannenbaum Helpern represents a prominent group of construction clients, including real estate owners, ranging from large scale national REITs to local building owners and not-for-profit institutions. Well versed in all aspects of the construction process, Tannenbaum Helpern attorneys regularly negotiate professional services and consulting agreements, general construction contracts and construction management agreements with architects, engineers, consultants, general contractors and construction managers, as well as license agreements between developers and neighboring property owners. As adept litigators, we represent owners in claims involving architectural and engineering malpractice, defective work, delays, liens and general breach of contract.

Tannenbaum Helpern’s construction lawyers are widely considered to be some of the best in the industry. In particular, our construction practice has been recognized in Chambers USA. The co-chairs of our construction practice author the New York Law Journal’s Construction Law column.
