Michael L. Burnett focuses his practice primarily on construction litigation and all aspects of construction law, with a concentration on the representation of owners, general contractors, subcontractors and others in the construction industry.
He assists clients through all stages of construction projects, including preparing and negotiating construction contracts, advising owners and contractors during the project so as to avoid and resolve disputes during projects, and litigating disputes subsequent to project completion. Michael has tried lawsuits to verdict in state and federal courts, both in Texas and outside of the state. In addition, he has tried a number of domestic and international arbitrations.
The Construction Law Practice:
Greenberg Traurig’s Construction Law Practice assists clients from the initial conception and delivery planning of a construction project, through procurement and bidding, in the negotiation and drafting of contracts, throughout construction, to project close-out and the resolution of disputes. Our experience is rooted in a diverse client base, which includes developers, public and private owners, designers and consultants, general contractors, construction managers, subcontractors, suppliers, sureties, insurance companies, and lenders. Our lawyers are recognized locally and nationally as leaders in the area of construction law and the majority of our construction lawyers practice only construction law, either transactional or arbitration and litigation.
We believe that GT’s construction transactional practice makes us better litigators, our construction litigation practice makes us better transactional lawyers, and our combined practices give us unique insights that distinguish us from other firms. Supported by the multidisciplinary resources of one of the country’s largest law firms, GT applies its deep knowledge and experience to effectively address all of the issues that commonly arise on construction projects.
