A construction project might seem like it could be completed without any legal issues, but there are times when the general contractor and the subcontractors don’t agree on procedures or aspects of the project. An attorney can speak with the client to determine what the issue is about and the best way to settle it whether it’s through mediation or going to court. For many construction projects, the general contractor delivers the orders for the subcontractor, and the subcontractor has to fulfill those tasks by a certain time. If those tasks are not completed, then it can push back the entire project, which means money lost for the general contractor as well as other people involved in the completion of the building.
Minor disagreements can also have a major impact on when the project is completed and how the workers handle themselves around each other. If you are in a situation that involves a dispute, it’s important to find a lawyer who has the legal experience to handle this kind of problem. Aside from handling disputes, an attorney can draft proposals and contracts to sign by each party. This is often the best avenue to go when you’re starting a new project and need guidance or if you want to ensure that each step of the project is legally recorded in the event of any disputes in the future. An attorney can also support the rights of the workers if there are disputes with payments or other issues involving the project.
