To avoid problems during construction, the first step is selecting a reputable contractor that will deliver regardless of inevitable problems. The next step is ensuring that the scope of the project is carefully articulated, and that the documents correspond with that scope of responsibilities. Without clear documents protecting your interests, there is a strong probability that there will be disputes that increase your costs via: change-orders, project delays, material price increases, or ultimately result in litigation. Battleson Law can assist you with drafting and/or revising contracts for any construction or real estate development projects. Even if your project is already underway, or completed, you can count on our firm to add value.
If your company is dealing with a construction-related dispute, you’ve come to the right place. Battleson Law has over a decade of experience in real estate and business law, and we know the ins and outs of construction contracts. Unfortunately, many business owners run into problems with construction and real estate, including defects, failure to disclose, environmental violations, and other complications. This is an industry especially fraught with disputes, because the value of these projects is high and there are many different parties involved. When you’re working with developers, inspectors, contractors, subcontractors, vendors, third-parties, and others, it’s not uncommon for mistakes to be made and disagreements to arise.
Deal sponsors and owners are well served by contacting Battleson Law as early as possible when interviewing and negotiating with their general contractor or significant subcontractors, as we may be aware of options you have not considered. Reach out for your complimentary consultation to get started. We serve Metro Atlanta and all of Georgia.
