Construction Law


Subcontractors can sometimes feel powerless as small players in the midst of a large project. A subcontractor’s “share” of a construction project can be dwarfed by the overall cost at stake, leaving subcontractors vulnerable when up against owners, general contractors, and lenders.

In order to counteract such vulnerability, however, the legislature has provided powerful tools to subcontractors in the Construction Act. These tools include strict rules addressing prompt payment, the ability to lien property, and rapid dispute resolution.  To gain these benefits, however, knowing the rules and properly following the strict timelines is crucial.

When a subcontractor finds itself feeling outmatched, timely and accurate legal advice can help to turn the tables. Our experienced team is available to assist subcontractors in taking advantage of the various tools designed to empower smaller players in the construction industry.
