Homebuilding

Otten Johnson has assisted homebuilders with developing literally thousands of new housing units in Colorado and across the nation. We serve a wide variety of players in the homebuilding industry, including developers, owners, operators, residential land developers and lenders. We have experience with a range of project types, from large, complex, multi-phase and multi-builder planned communities, to small, urban in-fill projects. The attorneys in our litigation group also have experience resolving construction disputes, including litigating design/construction defect cases and other construction damages actions. Otten Johnson’s corporate attorneys can also assist homebuilders with their corporate needs, including entity formation and tax issues.
