Through years of experience, the attorneys at Sumsion Business Law have developed an in-depth knowledge of construction-related issues and construction law. We negotiate and draft construction contracts and litigate payment bond, performance bond, and construction defect claims.
Having worked for many years with real estate brokers, residential and commercial property owners, developers, general contractors and subcontractors, we excel in pressing and defending mechanic’s lien claims. From 20-day preliminary notices to post-lien lawsuits, Sumsion Business Law actively guides contractors, design professionals, and property owners through Utah’s lien law requirements.
Contact us today to see how we can partner to assist you with your Construction Law needs.
We can you help with:
- Construction Claims
- Change Orders
- Liquidated Damages
- Construction Liens and Utah State Construction Registry (SCR)
- Constructive Changes
Whether you are an employer with a claim against a contractor, or vice versa, we can help you navigate the claims process and ensure you understand all legal implications of your claim. We can help with claims related to delays and timing changes, quantum meruit-related claims, and all other claims in the construction process.
Change orders can often be the most difficult part of navigating construction projects. If you feel you were unjustly compensated for work, or that you paid more than you should have for changes, we will work with you and the other party to reach a mutually agreeable solution. We are here to provide professional assistance both before and after the project is complete.
Does your construction contract have an appropriate liquidated damages clause? Have you worked with the other party to determine a reasonable clause? If you haven't, we are here to help. If you have, but are experiencing problems enforcing the clause, we can be of assistance. Come talk to us about your liquidated damages questions.
If you need help understanding the lien law in Utah and how to register for a project on the Utah State Construction Registry, our attorneys can assist you. If you have lien issues, we are here to help you reach the best outcome possible.
Was your contract changed by an inspector or government official? If so, you may be able to claim constructive changes. When an inspector makes a change to the contract that incurs additional cost to the contractor, the changes are compensable by law.
