Foster Garvey Construction attorneys represent clients across virtually all aspects of the built environment industry, including public and private owners and developers, general contractors and subcontractors, engineering and architecture firms, building owners and other related professionals. We are committed to helping grow the Pacific Northwest region responsibly. Our clients include developers of commercial and mixed-use projects, single-family construction, civic and public facilities, school districts, housing developers, health care agencies, retail and sports stadiums.

We represent clients in all phases of a construction project, from the drafting and negotiation of contracts to mitigating issues that may arise during construction. Foster Garvey Construction attorneys are well-versed in litigation and dispute resolution should the need arise, including labor and material liens, insurance coverage, constructability issues and construction defects. The firm’s Construction team is also knowledgeable in insurance law and can consult with our Insurance Coverage attorneys to obtain maximum recovery or protection for our clients.
