Our Construction Industry Practice Areas
Our law firm is confident in its ability to provide you with comprehensive, reliable legal services in regard to a wide range of construction industry issues. Some of our construction industry practice areas include, but are not limited to:
- Contract drafting and review. Regardless of your role or title within the construction industry, contracts will no doubt be a big part of your job and the work that you perform. Indeed, contracts are what make the world go ‘round – any work that is performed and any products that are purchased are the result of a contract. Our lawyers are skilled contract attorneys who can draft, negotiate, and review any contracts that you or your business enter into.
- Project planning. Planning a construction project is about more than blueprints and architecture; zoning, permitting, and compliance with regulations are also key, too. Our lawyers provide comprehensive project planning services for construction companies and other parties.
- Payment disputes and collections. In the majority of cases, services or products are performed in exchange for payment. But payments aren’t always made in full, on time, or at all in some cases. If you have a payment or collections dispute, our lawyers can make sure that your best interests are protected.
- Mechanics’ liens. A mechanic’s lien refers to a type of legal document that protects the rights of a contract to recover any unpaid compensation. In other words, if a contractor performs services but is not paid for those services, they may file a mechanic’s lien against the property where service was performed. We can represent you in filing a mechanic’s lien, or in defending yourself against any mechanics’ liens against your property.
- Compliance with regulations. Construction parties must operate in compliance with a number of local, state, and federal regulations and rules, including those established by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and more. Our law firm is highly knowledgeable in the myriad of regulations that apply to the construction industry and are here to help ensure compliance and legal operations.
- Bankruptcy claims and litigation. Constructions companies, for various reasons, may at some point or another find themselves facing large amounts of debt – when this is the case, bankruptcy may be the best option. We represent those involved in bankruptcy proceedings and litigation, and can advise you every step of the way. In addition to assistance with a bankruptcy proceeding, we can also help you to explore any alternatives to bankruptcy.
- Dispute resolution. When disputes arise in the construction industry, it is important that they are resolved quickly – disputes that are drawn out often become more contentious and, if not resolved through alternative dispute resolution tactics, can become extremely costly for all parties involved. We offer services for alternative dispute resolution, including representation during mediation and arbitration, as well as in-court, litigation representation.
- Employment and labor issues. Some of the many rules and regulations with which construction industry businesses are required to comply are in regards to employment and labor laws. We will help your business to ensure that it is in compliance with all requirements, including OSHA laws, workers’ compensation laws, wage and hour laws, etc., and also represent you in the event of a dispute or claim.
If you have a construction industry opportunity, question, or issue that you don’t see listed above and that demands legal counsel, please call our law firm directly. We pride ourselves on our ability to effectively represent clients involved in a wide range of construction industry legal matters.
