Construction Litigation

Diligently enforcing and protecting your lien rights

Construction Litigation Law Firm

At Lerner & Weiss, our construction litigation attorneys understand that construction is a complex industry, where many parties are held together by contracts.

Every player involved in a construction project — from the architects who design the structure to the general contractor and individual subcontractors who bring the project to fruition — has a vested interest in preventing business losses due to contract disputes and costly litigation.

However in many instances, these vested interests are not always aligned. As a result, no matter how carefully construction contracts are drafted, disputes between parties are almost inevitable.

Experienced California Construction Litigators

It is essential to have a construction attorney with extensive experience navigating the many nuances of construction law. Because when a party fails to deliver on their obligations under a contract, or the inevitable dispute arises, you need to make sure that your rights are enforced and your interests remain protected.

At Lerner & Weiss, our full-service construction litigation lawyers represent all parties involved in the construction process, including: developers, owners, architects, contractors and subcontractors. We can handle disputes arising out of residential, commercial or industrial construction projects.

Some of the most common construction disputes include:

  • Contract drafting and negotiation of terms.
  • Project bid disputes.
  • Breach of contract issues.
  • Prevention of loss due to change orders.
  • Resolution of delay disputes.
  • Stop notices and bond claims.
  • Contractor and subcontractor disputes.
  • Material supplier claims.
  • Mechanic’s liens.

Our construction litigation lawyers have the experience and knowledge needed to secure a favorable resolution to any construction contract dispute. If we are unable to resolve the issues outside of court, our attorneys are skilled and aggressive litigators.

Flexible Fee Structures Now Available for Construction Cases

Construction litigation firms often charge by the hour. At Lerner & Weiss, we understand how difficult this can be for those working in the construction industry. We consider each client as part of our team and, unlike other firms, we work on a contingency basis for our construction industry clients.

This means that prior to our commencing working for you, we agree that if we prevail on your case, we will collect a certain percentage of the funds as our legal fee. If we lose, you do not pay legal fees and are responsible only for our out-of-pocket costs incurred as a result of the litigation. Contingency payment creates a win-win situation for you and for us.
