Construction projects should result in completed structures that are well-designed, safe, and built according to industry standards and applicable building codes. The parties to a construction project should also strive to prepare and execute the appropriate contracts for the work to be performed, and they should comply with those contracts in performance of the work, including payment terms, time for completion, and warranties.
Hiring a Construction Lawyer
In short, if you are involved in a construction project, you should consider engaging a construction lawyer to advise you as soon as possible. You should not wait until there’s a problem. Many issues and disputes can be avoided or better handled by having good legal work done upfront in the areas of licensing, bidding, contracting, and project management.
Construction projects of all shapes and sizes are being built every day. Many of those projects happen without problems, but sometimes disputes, payment issues, and poor workmanship occur. If you are concerned with the way your construction project is progressing, the quality of work, or your ability to receive payment for work performed, you may need to proceed to litigation or other dispute resolution procedures to address it. In that case, we strongly recommend you hire an experienced construction lawyer.
