Other Considerations When Hiring a Construction Attorney
Far and away, the most common type of legal issue that arises during a construction project involve financial issues. There are times when the project can run into problems and go over budget which can lead to payment disputes. Sometimes, businesses refuse to pay due to unmet expectations.
When these legal disputes arise, both parties have options to consider such as suing for breach of contract, placing a lien, etc. Your construction law firm should be able to appropriately recommend which solution best fits your situation
Also, keep in mind that government projects often fall within the purview of construction law. Bidding on a government contract means you have to pay close attention to the specifications of the project to ensure compliance. The problem is that some of the laws applying to these projects tend to change. This simply means it’s important to get experienced construction lawyers involved earlier in the construction process than later to ensure your protection and to minimize your risks.
