As one of the fastest growing cities in the United States, Houston is home to a booming construction market, both on the residential and commercial side. With more complex projects under way in the Bayou City, 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. 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.

Mr. Vethan did an extremely good job. His firm did. Got a million dollars judgment. And if you go back and look at the docket sheet when this fight first broke out, it was by no means clear that the trustee was going to get anything. So when Mr. Vethan, his firm, and Mr. Colvin won, you know they clearly did an exquisite job—excellent, excellent work.
