Our attorneys are particularly known for their work in construction litigation, contracts, and payments.
Cook Brown’s 35 years of representing employers in the construction industry – both general contractors and subcontractors – gives our attorneys the perspective and experience necessary to quickly identify key issues and efficiently represent parties in construction disputes.
Our work in contracts drafting and review focuses on ensuring that our clients do not unknowingly limit or waive their rights to prompt and fair compensation if additional work is required. Our attorneys also counsel businesses about the contracts they seek to enforce. If a dispute arises, Cook Brown aims for an expedited resolution, avoiding the costly distraction of litigation. Where litigation is necessary, our litigators will ensure effective, cost-effective, and proactive representation.
Mechanic’s Liens, Stop Payment Notices, Payment Bonds
Getting paid is a top priority for all companies. Cook Brown advises employers on the recording of mechanic’s liens and use of stop notices and actions on payment bonds to obtain payment for labor and materials. Our attorneys are experienced in counseling contractors on their payment rights and in representing contractors in litigation to obtain payment of monies owed to them by owners or other contractors.
