RMDT's construction and procurement law practice for leading
international and Romanian construction companies, owners, developers,
construction lenders, construction managers, subcontractors, vendors,
architects, and engineers involves virtually all phases of the
construction process. RMDT’s representation extends from the beginning
of a project through its conclusion, from the negotiation of contracts
and the preparation of bids, to the resolution of construction disputes.
RMDT attorneys regularly assist in project administration, job
close-outs and settlement, and privatization matters, and we have
experience in most forms of construction litigation including
arbitration. We provide a full range of services with respect to
government contracts, including bid protests.
RMDT's construction practice is built on years of experience in the
industry in which we have participated as counsel in projects as diverse
as the construction of Romania’s largest office building to date, its
largest private hospital, and the reconstruction of Romanian military
bases to meet NATO requirements.
Our construction and procurement attorneys have a thorough knowledge of
the law and extensive experience with construction defect claims, extra
work claims, delay and disruption claims, acceleration claims, and
claims for lost labor and equipment productivity. We have a thorough
understanding of how to calculate extended project costs so that we can
assist our clients in recovering monies lost on a delayed project. We
have experience addressing design defects, cardinal changes, commercial
impracticability, differing site conditions, access problems,
over-zealous inspectors, structural failures, rejection of nonconforming
work, terminations, payment and performance bonds, performance
guarantees, liquidated damages, and warranties.
When our clients need legal advice or practical guidance concerning any
aspect of a construction project, we are prepared to help. When
litigation cannot be avoided, we have prevailed in arbitrations
throughout Europe and in contested litigations in the courts of Romania
up the nation’s highest court.
RMDT offers much more than expertise in construction and procurement
law. Indeed, one reason that we consistently fulfill our clients' needs
is our ability to rely on other RMDT attorneys who are experienced in
handling the many diverse challenges that confront the construction
industry, including taxation issues, project finance issues,
environmental regulations, bankruptcy issues, intellectual property
rights, real estate transactions, and governmental agency relations.
