Skilled Attorneys Advise Clients on Phoenix Construction Contract Issues

Construction contract lawyers in Phoenix, Arizona resolve difficult problems

The construction industry is essential to the growth and vitality of the Phoenix area and Arizona in general. However, construction contracts can raise specialized, sometimes complicated, legal issues that may require the assistance of an attorney knowledgeable regarding the applicable laws. With more than 20 years representing contractors and subcontractors, Law Offices of Donald W. Hudspeth, P.C. in Phoenix is ready to assist contractors, property owners, subcontractors and suppliers.

What kinds of legal issues arise from construction contracts?

Construction projects can give rise to a number of contractual issues, such as:

  • Whether the work was substantially performed to specification
  • The conditions under which a contractor may delay work
  • Whether the contract contains warranties as to the quality of the work and, if so, whether the contractor and subcontractors satisfy those warranties
  • What liability a contractor has for substandard performance by a subcontractor
  • When must the contractor and subcontractors be paid and under what circumstances may payment be withheld
  • How disputes between the parties are to be resolved

We have the knowledge and experience to address these or other concerns associated with your construction contract.

Firm asserts clients’ rights in disputes relating to construction payments

One frequent and troubling problem that contractors and subcontractors face is non-payment or late payment for their work. The property owner might fail to keep up with the required payments to the primary contractor and the contractor might fail to pay the subcontractors in a timely manner. In some instances, effective communication is all that’s needed. Other times, contractors should act quickly to preserve their ability to attach a mechanic’s lien to the property. If you are unfamiliar with the process, we can help. Beyond that, our accomplished construction law attorneys are capable of representing you effectively if arbitration or litigation becomes necessary to recover what you are owed.

Experienced advocates work to resolve disagreements without litigation

Conflicts over payment and other matters can frequently be worked out without going through the time, expense and hassle associated with litigation. Even after a lawsuit has been comments, our firm can work to negotiate a settlement that can addresses payment, liability and quality-of-work issues. We might also be able utilize a method of alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation or arbitration, that could be mandated by the contract or agreed to by the parties. However, if these processes are not available and the other side is not amenable to resolving the dispute amicably, we will pursue your claim to judgment and defend you from any counterclaim.
