A Preferred Attorney for Construction Business Concerns
Every business has business law matters that impact their operations. However, those matters can look very different depending on the industry. The lawyer that helped your nephew license his new social media app might not be the best lawyer to hammer out a sensitive real estate development agreement involving several experienced entrepreneurs. A construction lawyer who knows your industry is the right person to advise you in all aspects of transactional matters that impact your construction or real estate development business.

Mistakes Up Front Impact the Bottom Line
The first reason many contractors and developers call an attorney often arises out of unique circumstances. Perhaps a contractor fails to perform, or a client fails to make timely payments. Planners might want an attorney to review compliance issues. It’s usually something very specific. For new developers and old hats alike, an attorney is often a last addition to the team, brought in after something goes wrong.
A construction attorney can definitely help with emerging legal matters when business deals go south. There is a better time to involve an attorney though. The best approach is to involve an someone trained and practiced in handling legal matters up front, before things go wrong. Getting matters lined out ahead of time can make the difference between months or even years of litigation, and an otherwise cordial agreement carried out according to well-defined terms of a contract.
Each business is as unique as the people behind the business. Some prefer to absorb some knowledge from expert counsel and then do things on their own. Others ask an attorney to review critical contracts. Some wait until things go wrong, and even then rely on family and friends for guidance. Yet most successful construction professionals recognize the value of expertise. You wouldn’t hire your bookkeeper to draw blueprints; you don’t hire landscapers to apply shingles. Why dump on your skilled project manager the difficult job of reading fine print in legal documents, or interpreting nuance in local rules or regulations?
Just as builders prefer to start a new project on a solid foundation, a successful construction project requires a solid legal foundation. Contact an attorney who knows the construction industry for expert help with all of your high-stakes contract, compliance concerns and professional agreements.
