Pre-Construction Phase

From advising a client on the delivery approach best suited to any project, be it design–build or a multi-prime project, Lavin & Associates, P.C. has the experience in representing owners and contractors to help you decide what is best for your project.

We can also offer the advice necessary to prepare, review and revise a construction contract to best suit the needs of our clients. Having represented contractors and public entities alike in preparing projects for bid, reviewing submitted bids, protesting accepted bids and even withdrawing them, we can help you assure that bids for public sector work are fully responsive and compliant with the applicable statutes, municipal ordinances and applicable regulations for all levels of government – local to Federal.

Having litigated many cases regarding contract interpretation, we can help you avoid the problems that come from poorly drafted contracts through negotiation of the contract.

Construction Phase/Compliance

We can bring all of our experience to bear when problems start to arise on your projects. From delay to abandonment, we can help keep the project moving and protect your interests.

If you are a contractor, subcontractor or supplier performing government work, there are many laws and regulations that must be complied with. Increasingly, we have seen problems arise on projects because of a failure to comply with those laws and regulations. From assuring that Federal or Federally assisted construction contractors comply with the many laws and regulations that impact their work to assuring that a claim, such as one for force account work, is properly and timely made against a state agency, Lavin & Associates, P.C. can help you.

If you are a contractor, subcontractor or supplier that has not been paid, we can help you navigate the highly technical requirements of filing a construction or mechanic’s lien. If you are an owner and do not believe that a lien has been properly filed, we can help you discharge it. Be it a municipal mechanic’s lien, a construction lien filed on a multi-residence project, or a claim on a performance or payment bond, we have dealt with it and can help you protect your interest.


From abandonment to design defect claims, we have handled it. We rely on our years of experience litigating construction claims on behalf of owners and contractors, both in the courtroom, before government agencies and in arbitration to provide you with cost effective representation.
