Practice Area Overview
Another aspect of construction law involves negotiation and documentation of project finance. Legal assistance may also be required in procuring labour and material or performance bonds from sureties and with issues arising when such bonds are utilized to complete the project. When property owners or contractors become insolvent, construction lawyers can assist in resolving the priority disputes that arise between lenders, government agencies, employees, and general creditors. A construction lawyer may also assist in review of various insurance policies such as builders’ risk/course of construction, wrap-up, and general liability policies and issues arising between construction parties and insurers if disputes arise.
Construction litigators are involved when disputes arise either through or after the construction process. During the tender process, there may be disputes regarding the bid process. During or after construction, there may be disputes about work that is part of or extra to the contract, costs associated with a delay in the construction, quality issues, and damage to the actual project. These issues may be resolved through mediation, arbitration, or trial. Construction law also involves the lien process whereby a legal charge is registered against the land to secure unpaid work or materials.
