Construction Law deals with all legal issues relating to the construction process from land acquisition and project financing to post-construction claims settlement. These include such matters as, building contracts, bonds and sureties, construction and builders' liens, tendering, and construction claims, which affect all participants in the construction industry, including lender financial institutions, architects, general contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, builders, owners, planners, designers, developers and engineers.

Should I hire a lawyer?
If you are involved in a construction project, you should consult with an attorney. You don't even necessarily have to involved with a commercial construction dispute to benefit from an attorney's counsel. The attorney can help you with obvious issues like determining construction claims and disputes, litigating construction disputes in court and with competitive bidding disputes. But, you should also consider retaining attorney for drafting and negotiating contracts, legal assistance during project with contract compliance and scope of work issues, assistance with mechanical liens and other day to day issues that arise.
