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.
