Do I Need a Construction Litigation Attorney?

It’s inevitable: if you are in the construction industry, you will eventually need legal counsel. Whether you need attorneys in your corner to help mediate disputes between general contractors, to defend the quality of your work on a project, or to collect on an unpaid project, let RDM put its years of experience to work representing your business. 

What Is Construction Law?

Construction law goes beyond building things. It doesn’t just involve contract negotiation between owners and general contractor or subcontractor. It involves the interactions between vendors, suppliers, and professional services providers, as well as making sure that your project is able to obtain the proper building approvals and variances necessary to make your customers’ visions come to life. It involves the clearance of mechanics’ liens and negotiation with other parties to finish your project.

It also goes beyond the day-to-day issues that can arise on a worksite. It deals with the sometimes unfortunate need to litigate when projects don’t turn out as envisioned, when others cut corners that impact construction, and when seeking monetary damages for delays, rebuilds, and unexpected costs.
