Carr Allison is committed to zealous representation of construction companies and construction professionals in all legal matters affecting the industry.  Our lawyers have extensive experience defending developers, general contractors, subcontractors and design professionals  in construction  cases.  Our lawyers have represented clients in claims involving construction accidents,  construction defect cases, breach of construction contracts , and in product liability claims involving construction.  Our experience allows us to assist our clients in drafting and interpreting construction and construction related contracts, with the goal of reducing or eliminating the potential for litigation.  We believe that lawyers who have  assisted in avoiding construction lawsuits,  tried construction cases  or resolved construction cases through mediation or arbitration, can better understand what is most effective and most necessary in a construction contract.

With offices throughout the Gulf Coast region, including offices in and near major metropolitan areas, our lawyers have extensive experience investigating and litigating matters involving every conceivable type of property – from high end beachfront and coastal condominiums, to commercial properties and single family residences.  Although the nature of the properties may differ, our commitment to an efficient, thorough defense of our construction clients never varies. Our goal is to quickly identify the strengths and weaknesses of each party and place our clients in a winning posture from the outset of a case.  Whether the case needs to be settled or tried, our litigation philosophy emphasizes early identification of issues and a commitment to protecting and advocating our clients’ interests.

At Carr Allison, we understand the many and unique challenges faced by the construction industry.  This understanding allows us to be a valued partner that contributes to our clients’ long term stability and success.
