Kean Miller LLP represents many of Louisiana’s most successful construction companies and Fortune 500 companies in construction law matters.  We also represent construction companies, contractors, architects, and engineers.  We handle legal issues in connection with contract interpretation, including drawings, specifications, change orders and back charges, lien rights and remedies, contract disputes and litigation.  In addition, we have substantial experience in the Private Works Act, the Public Works Act and the Miller Act.  Our lawyers assist industry clients with issues involving performance and payment, bid and retainage bond rights, liability and responsibility.  On behalf of our clients, we have negotiated with owners, general contractors, subcontractors, architects, laborers, material men, bond companies, suppliers, architects, attorneys, bankruptcy trustees, bankers, and public officials. 

We also advise construction industry employers with respect to compliance with state and federal wage payment requirements, including the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act, as well as the Davis-Bacon Act, which applies to employers performing work on certain federally funded construction projects.
