Effective Representation For Construction Delays And Payment Claims
The successful completion of any construction project depends on staying on track with both the schedule and budget. When something goes awry, the interests of multiple stakeholders may be in jeopardy — from the project owner to the general contractor to individual subcontractors. Delay and payment claims are essential to enforcing parties’ rights. They also serve to allocate costs among the parties responsible for the delay or wrongly withheld payment.
