Construction Law

We assist clients with a wide range of construction law matters relating to construction contracts, construction practices and transactions, and resolution of construction disputes through mediation, arbitration or construction litigation :

Surety bonds: A surety bond can offer protection to owners, general contractors, subcontractors, and material suppliersĀ  in connection with the payment and performance obligations of a bonded contractor or subcontractor. A surety is liable to an obligee or claimant under a bond if the bond principal or primary obligor defaults in his construction or payment obligations.

With extensive knowledge of surety bond law, we can assist owners, contractors, subcontractors, suppliers or sureties, on all surety bond issues, including those relating to performance bonds, payment bonds, license bonds, release bonds, indemnity issues, and interpleader.

MechanicsĀ Liens and Stop Payment Notices: Under California law, a contractor, subcontractor, or supplier has a right to help ensure they will be compensated for their work or material by filing a stop payment notice or a mechanics lien. Our construction lawyers assist clients who need help with mechanics lien issues. There are many time-sensitive requirements and deadlines in this area of law.

Administrative Law: We assist contractors and subcontractors facing administrative issues involving citations, suspension or revocation of their contractor licenses by the Contractors License State Board (CSLB.) We can help you file a Notice of Defense and represent you at the Office of Administrative Hearings.

Other construction law issues: Change orders, workmanship issues, unfair competition and misappropriation of customer lists and trade secrets, breach of contract and collections, appeals, bid protests, and other construction issues.
