Construction Law - Disputes, Negotiation and Litigation

Murphy Pearson Bradley & Feeney's Construction Law Group advises and represents developers, general contractors, design professionals, subcontractors and suppliers throughout the construction process. Whether negotiating and drafting contracts, handling Calderon claims or defending clients in construction defect litigation and administrative board proceedings, we aggressively represent our clients' interest in a cost-effective and efficient manner.

Contract Negotiation

While Murphy Pearson Bradley & Feeney's attorneys are first and foremost trial lawyers, sometimes the best course is to avoid a dispute altogether. To this end we work with our construction clients to properly identify, minimize and allocate risks at the outset of the projects so our clients are well insulated should a dispute arise. Our multidisciplinary group is adept at negotiating contracts for a wide range of projects from complex public-private partnerships to small businesses. Additionally, once the construction is completed, our team of attorneys can assist in the preparations of commercial and residential leases, property management agreements, sales contracts, investment and ownership entity formation.


Aggressive, creative and cost effective litigation solutions are the hallmark of Murphy Pearson Bradley & Feeney's construction group. Drawing upon our extensive litigation experience we are able to quickly analyze a claim and develop creative and effective litigation strategies and budgets, giving our clients the ability to determine a case's relative risks and benefits. Our attorneys have experience trying, and winning, complex construction cases at both the state and federal level. Additionally, our team is licensed in both California and Nevada. When appropriate, our attorneys can draw upon the Firm's expertise in other legal specialties to assist in managing and resolving construction law disputes.

Design Professionals

Murphy Pearson Bradley & Feeney's attorneys are experienced in the representation of design professionals, including architects, civil, structural, geotechnical, electrical, mechanical and acoustical engineers and landscape architects. Our attorneys also have a firm understanding of the design process and the particular responsibilities of design professionals in that process; including circumstances giving rise to the design professional's duty to defend his or her clients in light of the California Court of Appeal's ruling in the CH2M Hill case. This foundation provides a basis for understanding the design professional's unique role in the construction process and the specific standard of care issues.
