Proven Texas construction lawyers handle crucial details

The life’s blood of the construction trade is the contract. For any key player to get the full benefit of their bargain, they must have a clear and unambiguous contract that articulates their rights and obligations. When contract terms are vague and open to interpretation, you can’t be sure what you’re going to get and may not be able to enforce your right to the performance you expected. Our firm’s attorneys have extensive experience negotiating and drafting construction contracts, in a range of real estate scenarios, so there’s never doubt about material matters or even fine details, such as:

  • Scope of services
  • Quality of materials
  • Observation of pertinent building codes
  • Safety standards
  • Costs
  • Deadlines
  • Liquidated damages
  • Finance structure
  • Payment schedule
  • Workmanship guarantees
  • Insurance
  • Liability and waivers

When you have a specific, detailed contract, you have an instrument you can enforce. Such a contract provides incentives for all participants to perform as expected, reducing the potential for a breach. If a breach of contract does occur, you have the leverage you need to obtain a timely and effective remedy.

Even before you place a bid on a project, you have to have a clear sense of the contract you will be entering. That’s why it’s important to seek and receive reliable legal advice early and often.

Experienced trial lawyers manage construction litigation

Unfortunately, anyone who engages in the construction trade runs the risk of a breach of contract. You might be the victim of another party’s breach or find yourself, despite your best efforts, in breach. When that occurs, you want sound advice and advocacy that delivers a timely solution at minimal expense. Our construction litigation team has managed a wide variety of construction disputes, for such matters as:

  • Anticipatory breaches
  • Boundary disputes
  • Delays in performance
  • Delayed payments
  • Delays in material delivery
  • Change orders
  • Liens
  • Regulatory noncompliance
  • Safety violations
  • Subpar performance
  • Substandard materials

Our attorneys use a variety of approaches to resolve contract disputes, including traditional negotiations, mediation, arbitration and civil lawsuits. We understand the importance of getting a timely solution that keeps your project on schedule and allows you to maintain important business relationships. We avoid expensive and time-consuming litigation whenever possible, but when going to court is the only way to enforce your rights, you can trust us to manage your case skillfully as we fight to obtain the best possible remedy.
