With a history rooted deeply in California construction and real estate, the attorneys of Wendel Rosen’s Construction Practice Group have worked on some of the most important projects in California and outside the state, from iconic landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge to the shiniest new additions to the San Francisco skyline such as the Salesforce Tower.
Wendel Rosen’s construction attorneys have assisted clients involved in nearly every aspect of design and construction, including owners, developers, architects, engineers, construction managers, contractors, subcontractors, material suppliers, equipment lessors, sureties and insurers.
