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 :

  • Construction contracts: We provide preparation and legal review of construction contracts.
  • The bid process and bid protest: We assist clients in navigating the bid process to obtain public and private construction projects and manage bid protest actions.

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

With extensive knowledge in surety bond law, we can assist owners, contractors, subcontractors, suppliers or sureties, in all surety bond issues, including issues relating to performance bonds, payment bonds, license bonds, lien or stop-notice release bonds, and indemnity issues.

Liens and stop notices: Under California law, a contractor, subcontractor, supplier or laborer has a right to ensure they will be compensated for their work by filing a stop notice or mechanic's lien. Our construction lawyers assist clients who need help with mechanic's 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 or the suspension or revocation of their contractor licenses.

Other construction law issues: Unfair competition, change orders, workmanship issues, misappropriation of customer lists and trade secrets, contractor collections, appeals and other construction issues.
