Cotney Construction Law is dedicated to representing the construction industry. In Tennessee, the lawyers at Cotney Construction Law routinely handle all aspects of construction litigation including appellate work. Its national OSHA defense practice has been recognized for its representation and aggressive defense of contractors, suppliers and manufacturers against OSHA.
Cotney Construction Law is a unique construction law firm because most of its attorneys have a background in construction ranging from work as estimators for structural contractors, roofers, overseas manufacturers of construction products, and supply house distributors. At Cotney Construction Law, we understand construction – not because we read it in a book, but because our real-world knowledge allows us to provide clients with both legal and practical advice.
