services & industries


UKS has extensive involvement in the construction industry, both in the public and private sectors, since its inception almost four decades ago.
We represent our clients in all phases of the construction process, from the initial conceptual stage through the final project completion, and if necessary, the dispute resolution stage.  This involvement often involves the drafting of large and small construction and supply/services agreements, assistance with the retention of design and construction professionals, reviewing bid documents resolving bid disputes at an early stage, addressing problems that arise during the course of the construction phase, resolution of changed work issues, project closeout and, if needed, dispute resolution.

We also has extensive experience as an active participant in the development, management, or litigation of many major construction projects in Connecticut, as well as others around the country.  Our clients include contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, municipalities, special service districts, other public and quasi-public entities, private entities and non-profit entities (as both general and special counsel), and design professionals.

We are also heavily involved in the general business aspects of construction, particularly corporate issues, employment issues, office management, governmental compliance and ownership of design rights.
