As a construction professional, there are a number of legal services that you will require throughout the course of your career. From having a lawyer draft a demand letter on your behalf all the way to having an attorney represent you in a court of law, almost every aspect of a construction business requires legal assistance and protection. And to that point, it makes the most legal and practical sense to partner with a Dallas construction attorney who is incredibly knowledgeable in all areas of construction law and has the real-world experience necessary to assist you with any of your legal needs. Below, we go into detail about just a few of the key services provided by our dedicated team of highly-experienced attorneys here at Cotney Law.
Contract Drafting & Review Provided By Dallas Construction Attorneys
An ironclad contract is a necessity for every construction business. Before you put pen to paper, one of our Dallas construction attorneys can review or draft a contract that can affirm your right to payment, streamline the payment process, protect your best interests, outline the scope of work, and provide you with dispute resolution services. This is because we know how easily poorly drafted contracts can lead to disputes due to missing clauses and misinterpretation. We’ll ensure that each and every one of your contracts is compliant, valid, and able to increase the profitability of your business.
Many construction business owners don’t think to hire a construction attorney for their dispute until it’s already boiled over into a lengthy and expensive courtroom battle. The truth is, although we’re glad to provide you with aggressive and tenacious representation in a court of law, we can also help you to resolve your dispute in a much more cost-effective and time-effective manner through alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods like mediation and arbitration. Only in the event that we’re not able to find you an efficient and private resolution through these methods will we move to represent you in court through the process of litigation.
Whether you’re preparing for an OSHA inspection, looking to contest a citation, or remedy safety hazards and prevent further violations, a Dallas construction attorney can help you seamlessly navigate the process. We have represented contractors, suppliers, manufacturers, and other construction professionals in all phases of OSHA-related legal matters and know the steps your business should take to defend against OSHA violations. When you partner with one of our attorneys, we can offer insight into why you may have received a citation, represent you in any related hearings, discuss how penalties can be reduced through corrective actions, and provide the best course of action to prevent future violations.
Invest in the Future of Your Business
All of the services described above only scratch the surface of the comprehensive selection of legal services provided by Cotney Law to grow and protect your construction business. We also provide contractors, subcontractors, and other construction professionals with collection efforts, lien and bond claims, construction defect defense, and manual drafting. Each of our attorneys is intimately familiar with all of the factors that go into a construction project of any size or type and can help you meet your business goals while minimizing potential issues. With one of our Dallas construction attorneys by your side, you’ll not only have representation during a conflict but also the assistance necessary to stay on track with deadlines and in compliance with legal and safety requirements.
