With the rapid growth of Dallas, especially the communities in North Dallas, the Metroplex has seen extensive activity in the commercial construction sector. With more complex projects under way in Dallas, VLF’s construction lawyers are taking on more critical roles in advising developers, owners, architects, engineers, builders, subs, trades, subcontractors, and suppliers in all market segments. The manager of VLF’s Dallas office has over 20 years’ experience in representing all stakeholders in a construction project, whether mid-sized commercial to utility plant construction. Whether dealing with issues ranging from performance, compliance, or change order disputes, our construction lawyers are experienced in handling the negotiation, transaction, and litigation or arbitration of those disputes.
VLF provides guidance in the ever-changing battle of “form” agreements:
Agreements updated by the American Institute of Architects (AIA)
Consensus documents favored by Associated General Contractors (AGC)
Any form customizations preferred by large developers, or trade specialty or local organizations.
VLF is also the go-to counsel when disputes result in slow pays, non-pays, non-conforming work, lien filings or bond claims, or when such matters escalate to litigation or arbitration. VLF’s construction litigators have won significant results for our clients in state and federal court, as well as before specialized construction law panels of the American Arbitration Association (AAA) and the JAMS Foundation.

As a small architectural and planning firm looking for expert legal counsel on how to best restructure our corporation, we wanted a law firm with the same hands-on client service approach as we at INsite embrace. The search began on the internet, looking for corporate attorneys in the Houston area. Unlike our interactions with other law firms, the office staff at VLF were so helpful and responsive to our questions that we decided to meet with Charles Vethan. We are so pleased, have had positive outcomes with several matters, and look forward to a continued relationship with VLF!
