Architecture & Engineering

Constructing a building is a complex project, both legally and technically. Consequently, architectural and engineering practice increasingly demands a sound understanding of planning, construction, and commercial law issues.  Dr. Benumof works with architects and engineers to help them with the legal aspects of day-to-day architectural and engineering practice and the consequences of the many legal processes and relationships that are part-and-parcel of the construction process.  Likewise, Dr. Benumof represents property owners confronted with overlapping issues of law, architecture, and engineering.
