Services Cotney Construction Law Offers
Our Chattanooga contractor lawyers can provide industry professionals with a variety of essential legal tasks that can help streamline the construction process and avoid or resolve disputes on our client’s behalf. Here are some of the main services our law firm offers:
Litigation and Arbitration: Unfortunately, disputes are often unavoidable in the construction industry and contractors often need these matters resolved through either litigation or arbitration. Our Chattanooga contractor attorneys have handled countless cases between owners, contractors, and other industry professionals.
OSHA Defense: If an OSHA inspector issues a costly citation to a construction company for failing to adhere to health and safety rules and regulations, this can be crippling to a project. If you have received an OSHA citation, we can aggressively defend you by filing a Notice of Contest on your behalf.
Lien and Bond Claim: If a property owner has failed to properly compensate you for your professional services (labor, equipment, or materials provided), a Chattanooga contractor attorney can file a lien claim that accelerates the process of being paid for your hard work.
Alternative Dispute Resolution: Construction mediation is the process of settling disputes outside of the realm of litigation or arbitration without a legally binding resolution. This can be a beneficial approach to litigation as it’s more cost-effective and more expedient method to coming to the terms of an agreement.
Contractor License Defense: If you have been accused of contracting without a license, misallocating funds, or any other serious allegation of misconduct, there may be criminal consequences and steep financial penalties for your actions. It’s critical to employ a Chattanooga construction attorney that understands the complex licensing laws enforced in your state.
