services & industries that add up


Poyner Spruill has a knowledgeable and experienced group of attorneys whose practices are concentrated in the area of construction law. They represent lenders, developers, architects, engineers, owners (private and governmental), sureties, general contractors, subcontractors and suppliers in all phases of construction law. Services include the negotiation and drafting of construction-related documents and arbitration, mediation and litigation involving construction disputes.

The firm has defended multi-million dollar delay claims on multi-prime construction projects, represented contractors and designers before licensing boards and defended against OSHA citations. The partner who chairs this group has been selected by the American Arbitration Association as an Arbitrator of Construction Disputes and is a certified mediator.

Poyner Spruill construction law attorneys regularly represent clients in collecting amounts owed on construction projects and in defending such claims. They are well versed in North Carolina and South Carolina's mechanic's lien and surety bond laws, as well as claims filed for payment under the Federal Miller Act. The attorneys in this section have filed and defended mechanic's lien's and construction collection lawsuits throughout the Carolinas.

In addition to providing outstanding legal services to our construction clients throughout North and South Carolina, Poyner Spruill, through its membership in the USLAW NETWORK and SCG Legal, is able to assist its clients efficiently when matters arise in a distant forum. These networks, comprised of independent law firms throughout the 50 states, which are not engaged in the joint practice of law, provide Poyner Spruill with critical information regarding unique aspects of the laws of various states in a fraction of the time and at significantly less cost than is normally expected. In large cases involving out-of-state parties or projects, we are able to mobilize this network very effectively for the benefit of our clients.
