Green Building

The decision to build green opens the door to complex and sometimes untested negotiations on standards, contracts, and other issues. You want a law firm that is well equipped to advise you of the risks associated with green construction projects, and that can help you limit any unnecessary exposure. In addition, you want legal representatives who are knowledgeable about the incentives and credits available to those who’ve chosen sustainable green construction methods.
