Construction Law

The legal team at Stevens & Company strive to provide respectful and trustworthy assistance to our construction clients. Building involves a great deal of risk and a large number of rules and regulations. Furthermore, builders must work with a variety of people in the process and it is essential they maintain effective methods of dispute resolution for their own protection.

Construction law, by definition, is the regulation of the rights and obligations of parties over different phases of a construction project. Our lawyers can negotiate and prepare project documentation. This encompasses a wide range of contracts and subcontracts, as well as tendering documents.

Thereafter, disputes can arise during or after a construction project. For example, there may be costs associated with a delay or add-ons in construction or quality concerns. Fortunately, we can help resolve these issues through mediation or arbitration. We can also take care of a lien process to secure unpaid work.

In addition, legal assistance may be required to negotiate and document the finances of a construction project. Or perhaps a property owner or contractor becomes insolvent and you require assistance in resolving the resulting priority disputes among creditors, employees, and lenders. As well as reviewing insurance policies, our construction lawyers can certainly help you through the process.
