Contractor Claims

General contractors bear the ultimate burden of getting the job done. Working with the owner, designer, and architect, coordinating the work of subcontractors, ensuring the delivery of materials, and maintaining the construction work on schedule impose heavy burdens on the general contractor. Legally, a general contractor may often face conflict on two fronts – working to resolve claims with an unhappy owner and simultaneously demanding performance from a defaulting subcontractor. We are adept at helping contractors navigate through this terrain, advising on the drafting of correspondence, the issuance of default and termination letters, and the documentation of express and constructive change orders. After the job is complete, we assist contractors in claims and litigation against defaulting subcontractors and mechanic’s liens and other claims against non-paying owners.
