Construction and Contractors
While the basics of construction law and mechanics’ and materialmen lien laws remain pretty much the same, the courts continue, on a regular basis, to issue opinions updating the interpretation and application of the relevant statutes. It is important to keep on top of these changes, particularly with the continuing uncertainty in the building industry.

With volatility comes disputes as to who is entitled to payment for their work performed and materials supplied. I can help assure that you get a fair shake when these problems arise. Clearly, the sooner we review your operating procedures, the greater the odds that you will be able to defend and certify your procedures so you can focus on your business, rather than legal issues.
