Construction Litigation FAQs
It is far from uncommon to experience differences in opinions and expectations when working in construction. These types of projects typically span over months or, in some cases, years at a time. Often, these disputes are related to a lack of communication, one party’s recklessness, or simply an unwillingness to adhere to the terms of the contract.
Types of construction disputes we can advance through the courts involve:
- Mechanics liens
- Breaches of contract
- Breaches of warranty
- Workmanship issues
- Scope changes
How we approach a construction dispute will depend on your situation. Many cases can be resolved around the negotiating table, with trusted legal counsel on your side advocating for your best interests. If a decision cannot be reached this way, we can move to a litigation phase— a court trial where we vigorously defend your business, your rights, and your side of the issue.
At The Rubinstein Law Firm, we will listen intently to your situation and pursue the best possible course of action for your business. Whether that means bringing together all parties for serious negotiation or defending you in the courtroom, we’ll put the same tireless spirit and strategic insight to work for you.
A mechanics lien is a way for builders, contractors, laborers, and other construction professionals to guarantee payment for the work they perform. In Michigan, architects, engineers, surveyors, and other design professionals can also claim a lien. Mechanics liens attach to the title of the property, making it very difficult for owners to sell or refinance the property until they remit payment or otherwise satisfy the lien.
If you are a service provider seeking a legal remedy for unpaid work, a mechanics lien is a strong option. However, deadlines and documentation are crucial to this process, which is why we recommend consulting with a construction litigation attorney as soon as possible.
If you are a property owner with a lien on your property, you generally must satisfy the terms before you can move forward with your project. However, if you believe that you have done your due diligence or feel that the work was not completed to specifications, contact our team to discuss your case and your options for removing the lien.
