Construction law is a more specialized, but still significant, component of the legal services provided by Baker Newby. Our construction law team has extensive and broad experience in all areas of construction law related matters, and this depth of experience and knowledge has given our clients a competitive advantage in dealing with the complexities of the construction industry.
On the solicitor side, our team has experience in drafting all forms of construction-related agreements, from simple home construction/renovation contracts to extensive mega-project construction documents. We also have the ability to involve our construction litigation lawyers in the reviewing and drafting of such agreements in order to help identify and address potential issues so that they do not become the basis for disputes later.
On the litigation side, our team understands and is experienced in interpreting and explaining the demanding legal and technical requirements that arise from the underlying construction documents. We also have considerable experience in working with clients to resolve construction disputes before they become litigious, but are also well prepared and experienced to guide our clients through the rigours of Court if that becomes necessary. Working with our clients and experts as a team is a priority as we seek to achieve the best possible results, whether it is through reconciliation, mediation or arbitration, or in Small Claims Court, Supreme Court or the Court of Appeal.
Our firm represents clients from every sector of the residential, commercial and industrial construction industry, including owners/developers, general contractors, trades, suppliers, engineers, architects, designers, financiers, municipalities and construction associations, and have been chosen as counsel to some of the largest developers, general contractors and professional firms in British Columbia with interests throughout North America.

- Builder’s lien claims and other debt recovery actions

- Breach of trust claims
- Negotiation, mediation, arbitration and/or litigation of complex construction disputes
- Reviewing and drafting of all manner of construction contracts and related legal documents
