Mandelbaum Salsburg’s Construction Practice Group has been assisting the firm’s clients in both New Jersey and New York in all facets of construction-related issues for over 40 years. Our Construction Practice Group understands the financial pressures placed on our construction clients and is committed to addressing the individual needs of each client in a way that maximizes results – yet keeps the client’s bottom line in mind. Our team of dedicated professionals is goal-oriented, and eager to respond quickly to our clients’ needs. Our Construction Practice Group attorneys are recognized by their peers as having the highest professional standards and having an extensive record of success.

We take a proactive and pragmatic approach to providing counsel from the initial stages of a project through its completion; we draft, review and negotiate contracts, help clients anticipate and assess risks, and counsel clients during projects as issues arise.

There may be circumstances where issues cannot be resolved during the course of the project. In such events, we have extensive experience in construction industry arbitration and mediation, as well as litigation.
