Construction Law<< services
We are trusted legal counsel, advising on construction projects of all sizes across Alberta, Canada, and beyond.
On August 29, 2022, Alberta’s Builders’ Lien scheme will be replaced with the Prompt Payment and Construction Lien Act. For those involved in Alberta’s construction industry, this will usher in significant changes.
Visit our Prompt Payment Hub for information and guidance that will help you prepare for the changes.
Understanding your world
In construction, you must balance risk and reward every day. You understand the complexities and challenges of an industry where both global and local factors can make or break a successful project. We understand these things too. In Construction law, our scope is beyond our scale. We would not prosper without a deep understanding of the construction industry.
For over half a century, we have worked hand in hand with the construction industry. We are trusted advisors to our clients and offer full-service support, from project development and conception, to dispute resolution.
We consistently advise on industry-leading projects in Canada, the United States and beyond:

- We have provided advice on power projects including oil and gas, solar, wind, nuclear, and carbon capture.
- We represented parties in complex litigation, advocating for our clients in multiparty disputes where the stakes are high.
