Leo Law Firm’s Construction Law attorneys possess the legal knowledge and practical experience necessary to advise clients successfully through the challenges that arise throughout the construction process. By combining an understanding of the practical aspects of the construction process, our experience litigating construction disputes, and an understanding of our clients’ business goals, we help clients minimize risks and resolve challenges or disputes efficiently.
Our attorneys have experience representing general contractors, owners, suppliers, and subcontractors, in all phases of construction projects.
Bid and contract review is often the first step in helping our clients limit their risk and liability exposure. The idiom that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” aptly applies to construction contracts and litigation. Thus, our attorneys not only provide legal solutions to problems when they arise, but just as importantly we regularly advise our clients during the bid and contract negotiation stages to implement strategies to avoid disputes altogether. When disputes arise, well-crafted and strategic contract documents limit exposure, maximize opportunity for success, and minimize attorney fees. We can also prosecute or defend claims should a conflict arises.
For contractors and suppliers, preserving lien rights is often the most beneficial way a client ensures it gets paid. For owners, avoiding liens being placed on a project is often paramount to a project’s ultimate success and profitability. Alabama’s laws regarding construction liens requires strict adherence to the procedure and timing of asserting and perfecting a lien. Our attorneys regularly advise clients on asserting or defending claims related to construction liens.
When construction disputes arise, our construction litigators have the experience to successfully guide you through a dispute to achieve a positive result; always keeping in mind your ultimate business objectives. Our attorneys have experience representing clients in Federal and state courts as well as in mediation and arbitration proceedings throughout the country.
