Construction Law Services
The attorneys at JacksonWhite have many years of experience in regularly and effectively handling matters in the following areas:
Bid disputes can put a hold on payment for a project and even delay project completion. Documenting each bid is important to help avoid disputes regarding a quoted price, timeline, etc. Under-bidding is a common issue that leads to problems down the line when the project surpasses the bid criteria. Cover your bases when possible, but if a bid dispute arises, it is not the end of the world. An experienced construction law attorney can assist to adeptly mitigate the situation and help get the project back on track.
Maintaining adequate bonds according to the scope and possible liability of a project is a crucial part of construction business. These bonds are in place to act as protection against breaches in contract or fraudulent practices. If a breach occurs, a bond claim can be made to compensate for the breach. Construction law attorneys can assist clients with bond claims or assist construction companies with fighting against a bond claim.
If you are a contractor, subcontractor or supplier, you know that there are no guarantees when it comes to collecting monies. Unfortunately, even the highest quality of work and service remains unpaid. At JacksonWhite we believe in fairness and equity. We believe that services contracted for should be paid in full, and we fight to collect monies for our clients who remain unpaid.
Construction defects are part of the business, but remedies are available. We understand good work and fair conditions and can help when these standards are not provided or are questionable. Whether you are a client that believe there is a defect in the work provided, or a construction business that have a claim of defect against their work, the construction law team at JacksonWhite is here to help.
Contract Dispute Resolution
Dispute resolution is available for contract issues in construction transactions. Terms of a contract are enforceable and should not be taken lightly. Keeping accurate records of all work completed and related documents can help avoid contract disputes. Requiring all subcontractors to have a written contract can also be helpful in ensuring the work will be completed. No matter what your contract dispute is, our team can help resolve the dispute efficiently.
Mechanics’ & Materialmen’s Liens
A mechanic’s or materialman’s lien allows an individual, who provides services or materials, to put a lien on the property that the services and materials were used for. These liens have requirements that must be followed and notices that must be given, as required by statute. If you are a service provider or a property owner and would like to discuss the implications of a mechanic’s or materialman’s lien, contact an Arizona construction attorney.
Trusting a service provider can be difficult, but is required in the course of business. Having a solid understanding of what is expected is not always enough. This is where we step in to right the wrongs and ensure that contracts are upheld.”
