Contractor Liability

Construction contractors and subcontractors are among the most exposed professionals in the legal world of developer and construction litigation. Every line and paragraph of a bid or contract is open to legal liability if the contractor or subcontractor delivers late or delivers a defective product.

In many development projects, contractors are tied to subcontractors who did not deliver as promised. Getting paid takes a lot more than recording mechanic's liens, submitting change orders and processing progress payment applications. Litigation and contractor liability disputes can tie up your company for years.

At Sack Rosendin, LLP, our lawyers represent developers, contractors and subcontractors who become involved in contract disputes — either as a plaintiff against a construction owner or contractor who failed to pay, or as aggressive defense against a complaint filed against your company for defects or delays. Contact us to find out more.
