When it comes to construction, the foundation for success rests on a solid contract.

A successful building project begins with a thoughtful, well-crafted contract. And whether you are a builder, subcontractor, general contractor, developer, or property owner, the construction attorneys at KSR can help you develop a new contract, navigate a difficult one, and ensure that you understand and negotiate the right terms.

Our expertise in construction law includes simple building contracts, complex general contracting, and public entity construction contracts. Regardless of the size or scope of a project, our goal is to make sure that it is successfully concluded and to minimize risk for everyone involved.

We also provide counsel related to mechanic’s liens, which can derail the success of any construction project. This can happen when a contractor or supplier who has not been paid obtains an interest in property by recording a mechanic’s lien. Mechanic’s liens have strict requirements for their content, their timing, and their notice. It is important that contractors and suppliers know these requirements in order that lien rights are not lost. We can help to ensure that lien rights are protected.

Property owners also need to make sure that construction projects are handled correctly and that mechanic’s liens are not filed. Owners have the same concerns and need assistance to make sure that any liens that are properly filed are also properly removed. We can assist in this process by dealing with contractors directly or through litigation if it becomes necessary.

Construction disputes arise frequently. Since they often involve many complex details and interested parties, resolving them takes investigative insight, expertise, and experience. These traits are what sets KSR attorneys apart — traits you can rely on to resolve any construction dispute, whether through negotiation, arbitration or litigation.

Our construction law team is ready to partner with you and keep your projects on a track to succeed. If you are ready to move forward, contact Erica Ann ProbstScott N. Schaeffer or Steven D. Rowe.
