Construction Attorney: Our Approach

While extremely intricate, construction law does not often concern monumental cases, with very few exceptions.

Areas of Construction Law

Construction is multifaceted, and so is its law. Contract construction law involves the drafting and signing of legal documents that hold parties responsible when certain things are not accomplished or services are not provided as expected. Employment law involves business owners adhering to federal laws concerning fair wages, timely payment, and withholding taxes. When employees are injured on site, workers’ compensation law takes over. Attorneys can help employers choose compensation insurance ahead of time and provide all relevant information to employees in order to comply with the law. Dispute resolution covers most other legal situations, and may range from simply conversing with other parties to engaging in full litigation.

Employee Benefits

Construction is one of the few fields that depends almost entirely on the skill level of the workforce, but the turnover rate is one of the highest. Reasons that construction workers leave the industry are most often wage-related, so employers have a reason to provide competitive wages and employee benefits. Benefits for the workers should be unique to their workforce and settings, and may include things like 401(k), holidays, vacations, and life insurance. An attorney can assess your project to determine what you’re responsible for providing, and aid in drafting contracts.
