Nisen & Elliott represents a number of contractors and others involved in the building trades. With the expansive activity in the construction business, there is a steady flow of legal issues requiring timely, accurate and practical advice. In representing the key parties to construction transactions -- owners, lenders, contractors and subcontractors -- the firm not only appreciates the customary legal rights and responsibilities of such parties, but also thoroughly understands their respective roles and expectations.  Our experience ranges from negotiating and preparing construction contracts for virtually all types of projects to handling mechanics' lien litigations in several jurisdictions. 

When owners and developers require legal assistance in obtaining requisite governmental approvals prior to the commencement of construction, Nisen & Elliott is prepared to respond.  The firm's attorneys have extensive experience in working with governmental administrators and presenting clients' cases to deliberative boards.  This provides a consistency and continuity which allows the firm to furnish all necessary legal guidance from start to finish for a given project.
