Skillfully Negotiating and Drafting Construction Contracts
We strongly recommend that you consult a knowledgeable property attorney with substantial experience in drafting construction contracts before signing any contracts. A well-drafted contract not only will ensure that your interest is fully protected, but will save you tens of thousands of dollars in attorney fees if litigation ensues. Those developers or contractors who do not employ a knowledgeable counsel to prepare their contracts or to assist them before the transaction is consummated often spend 5-10 times more in attorney fees when the other side breaches the contract, fails to perform or if there is a dispute over the contractor’s work. Some of the standard form contracts that contractors or developers routinely use do not even provide for the prevailing party to recover his attorney’s fees or costs.
At LA Law Firm, P.C., we take pride in adding value to each transaction by not only maximizing your profits but by minimizing your risk. By taking a proactive role and employing our services before entering into a construction contract, you can rest assured that we would work closely with you to ensure that your construction contract will fully protect you in the event that the other side fails to finish their work or fails to pay for the completed work, breaches contract, makes a false claim, stops making payments, interferes with your ability to finish your work, or demands payment for substandard work.
