Common Construction Law Issues

Houston Construction Lawyers

In Texas, the construction industry is booming. With the growth of the construction industry comes the need for experienced construction law attorneys that can assist with the unique legal issues that arise. At Feldman & Feldman, our construction law attorneys have experience successfully handling a wide variety of construction law issues, but some of the most common construction law issues we handle include:

  • Timeline Disputes – Projects don’t always go as planned. Parties can quickly start feuding over project delays and schedule changes.
  • Workmanship and Surety Issues – Anytime workmanship gets questioned, tempers can inflame the situation. If parties disagree on the quality of the workmanship, it can bring projects to a screeching halt.
  • Contractor Termination – Termination is often thought of as a lose-lose situation for all parties involved. All alternatives should be explored before considering contractor termination.
  • Construction or Design Defects – Accusations of structural defects, substandard materials, or code violations are incredibly serious and need to be investigated and handled very carefully.
  • Mechanics’ Liens – When contractors and suppliers go unpaid, they have a right to enforce mechanics’ liens under Texas law.
  • Contract Drafting and Negotiations – Unlike business contracts and other types of contracts, construction contracts have industry specific considerations. Only experienced construction lawyers will understand your needs and protect your interests when drafting and negotiating construction contracts.
  • OSHA Citations and Proceedings – Being proactive is the best way to prevent costly fines from OSHA and other regulatory agencies. For businesses already facing violations, quick and efficient remedies are the best way to prevent further damage.
