Serving Alberta’s Construction Industry
Albertans take pride in building our province both above and below ground. At Carbert Waite, we serve the people who make it happen. From the architects, engineers, planners, and developers who shape the project, to the material suppliers, construction managers, and sub-trades who bring it to life, our experienced construction lawyers serve a full range of clients across construction sectors.
Construction Law Expertise
We approach construction matters by understanding the relationships, timelines, dependencies, and professional standards within complex construction projects. From the first CAD to the last weld, our lawyers are equipped to assist with legal guidance every step of the way. We proceed by combining extensive construction law experience with old fashioned hard work to protect our clients’ profitability and keep their projects on track.
When legal disputes do emerge, our construction lawyers are prepared to resolve disputes as pragmatically as possible, using the legal tools best suited to the job — whether negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and/or litigation. Completing successful construction projects requires anticipating problems and preparing alternative strategies to see the project through. Our legal work is no different.
