Bruce Phillips also handles many types of Construction Law such as legal disputes with workplace injuries and accidents, construction defects, construction defects, contract issues, and problems with obtaining the proper planning or building permits. Financial issues are some of the most common types of legal issues that can arise during a construction project. Some construction projects go over budget due to unanticipated labor or materials costs. Alternatively, some customers refuse to pay construction companies for a finished product that does not meet their expectations. When these legal issues arise, construction companies and contractors have a variety of legal options, ranging from suing for breach of contract to placing a lien on the finished work. Many contractors seek legal help immediately upon notice of a brewing financial dispute in order to protect all of their legal rights.
Government contracts play a large role in construction law. When bidding on a government construction project, contractors must pay close attention to the specifications of the job to ensure that they will be able to comply with any additional requirements. Because the law related to government contracts is constantly changing, many contractors bidding on government work may need legal counsel sooner than they might otherwise expect.
