#Who We Are

Practical Construction Law Advice

Practical Project Management Advice

Wood L&M Solutions was formed in 2016 from the merger of Wood Legal Solutions and Wood Management Solutions. Clients needed a "One Stop Shop" that could provide construction law advice that was practical as well as accurate along with assistance in the management of their projects and their contracts. Clients often need advice and/or assistance in both practice areas.
