On any residential or commercial construction project, it is not unusual to have a substantial number of parties involved. There is the general contractor and numerous subcontractors, as well as materials suppliers, and the homeowner or business that is having the construction done. With so many parties working side by side, the opportunity increases for legal issues to arise. When that happens, The Woodlands construction law firm of Gauntt, Earl & Binney, LLP, uses decades of experience to facilitate a fast and positive resolution.
Resolving Construction Disputes
The majority of construction disputes our attorneys handle are related either to defects or payments. When the property owner brings a construction defect claim, there are any number of complexities that may arise, including finger-pointing from one subcontractor to the next. We cut through the complexities to find a resolution.
Nonpayment claims can be similarly complex. The property owner pays the general contractor, who pays a subcontractor, who pays a material supplier, so on and so forth. When payment does not work its way down the chain, we can address the collection effort, ideally in a manner that does not jeopardize working relationships.
Other construction disputes involve mechanic's liens, retainage and more. With decades of experience on our side, we can handle all claims.
Risk Management For Contractors
The best lawsuit is the one avoided. That is why we offer risk management services to contractors, subcontractors and other parties involved in the construction industry. We review and negotiate construction contracts, assess operational procedures and credit procedures, make certain documents and processes are in place to protect liens, and more.
