Construction Law

Construction law covers a wide range of legal issues that can arise during the construction process. Construction lawyers represent clients in all aspects of construction, from the initial planning stages through to completion and beyond. They work with architects, engineers, contractors, developers, and other professionals to ensure that all legal requirements are met and that their clients’ rights are protected.

Construction lawyers handle a variety of legal matters, including contract drafting and negotiation, project financing, land use and zoning issues, construction defect litigation, and surety bond claims. We also provide advice on insurance coverage and risk management for construction projects. In addition, construction lawyers may represent their clients in mediation or arbitration proceedings.



Construction default occurs when a contractor fails to perform their obligations under a construction contract. This can include failing to complete the work on time, failing to meet the quality standards specified in the contract, or failing to pay subcontractors or suppliers. Construction defaults can have serious consequences for all parties involved, so it is important to understand your rights and responsibilities if you are facing a potential default situation.

There are two main types of construction defaults: material and contractual. Material defaults occur when the contractor fails to provide the materials specified in the contract. Contractual defaults occur when the contractor fails to perform their work in accordance with the terms of the contract. Both types of defaults can lead to serious problems for the project owner, including delays, cost overruns, and legal liabilities.

When a contractor defaults on their obligations, the project owner has a few different options available to them. The first is to terminate the contract and hire a new contractor to finish the job. This can costly and time-consuming, so it is often not the best option for owners. The second option is to sue the defaulting contractor for damages. This may be the best option if the owner believes they can win their case and recover some of their losses. Finally, the owner can try to work with the contractor to find a resolution that satisfies both parties. This option is often the most difficult to achieve but can be the best outcome for all involved.

Mechanic's Liens & Bond Claims

Construction law covers a broad area of legal topics, from construction contracts to mechanics’ liens and payment bond claims. Construction lawyers help their clients navigate the complex web of laws and regulations that govern the construction industry.

Construction contracts are the foundation of every construction project. A well-drafted contract will provide a clear roadmap for the project, setting forth the roles and responsibilities of each party, the work to be performed, and the compensation to be paid. But even the best contract cannot anticipate every potential issue that may arise during a construction project. That’s where construction lawyers come in. They advise their clients on how to avoid or resolve disputes that may arise during the course of a project.

Mechanics’ liens and payment bond claims are two of the most important tools available to construction professionals in getting paid for their work. A mechanic’s lien claims against real property that is filed by a contractor, subcontractor, or supplier who has not been paid for his or her work. A payment bond claim is similar to a mechanic’s lien, but it is filed against a surety company that has issued a payment bond on behalf of the contractor.

Both mechanics’ liens and payment bond claims can be complex and time-consuming to pursue, but can help professionals get the compensation they deserve.

Construction law is a complex ever-changing area of the law. Construction lawyers stay up-to-date on the latest developments in the law so that they can provide their clients with the best possible advice.
