The business world is also fraught with legal pitfalls associated with general business transactions, such as oral and written contracts and buying or selling of assets. When disagreements arise between parties regarding a business contract, it may require legal help to negotiate a solution.
When opposing parties are intractable, our business attorneys Chris Stewart, does not hesitate to take more aggressive legal action, such as business litigation, if that is what it takes to resolve the problem for our clients.
While the Stewart Law Firm helps businesses ranging from sole proprietorships to corporations, we have extensive expertise serving the legal needs of the construction industry. Construction companies often incur liabilities and lawsuits arising from complicated business deals and dangerous workplaces.
This is because a big construction job can require the services of a general contractor who in turn hires sub-contractors and material suppliers. When property owners fail to pay for the construction work or contractors fail to pay their sub-contractors, then the sub-contractors must resort to legal remedies, such as construction litigation and mechanics liens against the property, to recover the payment they are owed.
Construction worksites are also very dangerous places where many tradesmen work side-by-side operating dangerous equipment. Despite all efforts to find the most qualified workers to follow Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations, serious accidents can leave tragic, long-term medical problems and disabilities in their wake. For this reason, worker disputes and injury claims are very common in the construction industry. Let the Stewart Law Firm help with any legal problems threatening to derail your construction business.
Construction litigation can also put enormous legal and financial pressure on construction companies and their partners. When property owners discover problems after construction is done, they can file against contractors, manufacturers and others to get monetary damages and satisfaction for construction defects.
The Stewart Law Firm represents contractors, sub-contractors, and specialty installers among others in matters of construction defect litigation, as well as workplace liability and placing liens on properties to guarantee payment.
