At Barton, our attorneys are well-versed in the many legal considerations that exist within the construction industry.

We routinely represent our clients in both commercial and residential projects, including office buildings, manufacturing facilities, shopping centers, hotels, restaurants, multi-family dwellings, co-ops and condominiums. We often oversee and offer counsel to help facilitate the renovation, expansion, and development of these properties.

We work closely with construction management firms, developers, contactors, subcontractors, and while we strive to prevent disputes from arising in the first place, we are able to litigate the full range of issues regarding development, construction, and ownership when necessary. Barton attorneys can also advise on labor and employment issues, land use, construction contracts, and tax matters.

Construction projects, regardless of size, are complex and comprised of many moving pieces. Barton helps take the guesswork out of these ventures by providing astute project management combined with a thorough knowledge of the industry.

  • Represented Construction Firm Regarding $100 Million Luxury Hotel
    • Represented a New York-based commercial real estate construction management firm against a developer-debtor of a 45-story luxury hotel and residential mixed-use complex in mid-Manhattan valued in excess of $100 million. Aggressively and successfully opposed its fast-tracked plan confirmation process so that the client’s multi-million-dollar trust fund-related claims were allowed in full, and the funds for the same were carved out of the estate and set aside as part of the debtor’s plan confirmation.
