New Mexico has extensive and complex statutory and regulatory requirements that apply to most aspects of construction and design work in the State. Construction and design professionals, including engineers, architects, other design professionals, general contractors, subcontractors, and surveyors, are each covered by separate licensing requirements and regulations. New Mexico also has State-specific statutes and regulations establishing requirements for bonding, procurement bids and protests, indemnification restrictions, liens, collection against bonds on public works projects, and special lender considerations for construction loans, among other special laws. Our lawyers are well-versed and experienced in assisting the full range of construction industry participants with these requirements and with resolving construction and design-related disputes that often arise.



Our lawyers have represented the full range of design professionals, general contractors, sub-contractors, suppliers, and owners in both public and private projects, in litigation, arbitration and mediations. We have wide-ranging experience, over the span of four decades, with the issues and requirements surrounding construction, project management, and design. Our clients (including clients with a long-standing presence in New Mexico and new clients) benefit from our in-depth knowledge of the practical considerations of the industry, as well as insights into the agencies and courts whose legal interpretations are a central component of effective advice and counsel in this State.
