Construction Law Attorneys

Construction law includes the creation and negotiation of the contracts, plans and specifications that precede construction, and development of real estate, as well as management of the relationships between owners, contractors, and sub-contractors during construction, and litigation in the event of non-performance or a breach of contract. At Caudle & Spears, P.A., our attorneys are experienced in construction-related transactional work and they represent a wide variety of clients in the construction industry, including owners, developers, general contractors, subcontractors, and materialmen. At the outset of the development process, our experienced construction law attorneys work with clients up-front to anticipate problems, reduce risk, and lay the legal groundwork for successful projects.

We are dedicated to protecting the rights and interests of our clients in the construction industry. Whether we are drafting and negotiating your contract or enforcing the obligations of the contract in litigation, your business objectives will always be our priority.

Our construction law attorneys successfully handle issues involving defects in construction or non-performance of construction contracts. If you are the developer or owner of a property and are facing an issue regarding a construction defect or non-performance of a construction contract, our attorneys can aggressively pursue your claim to perfect a lien, negotiate a settlement, or recover a verdict in your favor. Our attorneys routinely represent contractors as well as property owners in construction claims and litigation. To protect the interests of our clients, we will recommend the most effective strategies, documents, and experts, including other construction professionals, to provide guidance and opinions about the issues that will lead to successful results in your case.

Our construction lawyers will fully investigate your claim, conduct interviews with experts, visit the construction site, and become fully involved in making sure your interests are protected throughout the duration of any construction project and in litigation after the project is completed.
