Tower cranes are back on skylines as the construction industry emerges from challenging times. This emergence is sector-driven and success often depends on consolidation, innovation and a renewed dedication to productivity. Careful attention must be paid to risks, old and new.  More than ever, owners, contractors and design professionals need counsel who understand their challenges.  At Much Shelist, we know our clients’ businesses and we understand the risks they can face.  We care deeply about our clients, and we admire their dedication to design and construction.  A successful project matters a great deal to our clients and the communities they serve – and we share our clients’ passion for building.

Much Shelist’s Construction Group is known for its depth in construction law. Our knowledge and experience have made us a “go to” firm for many local, regional and national construction and real estate professionals and other firms involved in the complex construction process. Our clients include Fortune 500 companies and ENR-listed contractors and design professionals, as well as middle market industry players.  Whatever their size, our clients obtain the depth of knowledge of a construction law boutique coupled with the range and resources of a full service firm.  In fact, we are one of the few Chicago law firms with experienced construction law attorneys who also have substantial, hands-on training in the architectural and engineering professions. Our success is built upon the effectiveness of lawyers who truly understand the construction industry, who do not charge the hourly rates of "Big Law" and who believe deeply in developing long-term relationships with clients.
