What an Indianapolis Construction Law Attorney Can Do For You

Before you dismiss the need for legal assistance, consider everything that a construction attorney can do to protect your company. An attorney can be an incredible ally for not only resolving common issues but preventing them in the first place. More often than not, our attorneys save construction companies money through our invaluable services.

Below, we go over what an Indianapolis construction law attorney can do for you and your company. If you’re operating in the city of Indianapolis, you can only benefit from the dispute resolution, construction defect, mechanic’s lien, and license defense services we provide. Here’s how. 

The Services Offered by Our Indianapolis Construction Law Firm 

While other law firms only dabble in construction law, Cotney Construction Law is dedicated solely to this incredible industry. The majority of our team members have backgrounds in construction and are ready to assist Indianapolis contractors with any of their construction-related legal needs. Here are just a few of the services our Indianapolis construction law firm provides: 

Alternative Dispute Resolution 

During these times of uncertainty, it’s more important than ever to invest in alternative dispute resolution (ADR) services. ADR services, such as arbitration and mediation, are not only cost-effective when compared to litigation; they’re effective for helping feuding parties find a private, speedy resolution. Our attorneys can represent your best interests during ADR. 

Construction Defect Defense 

An Indianapolis construction law attorney should be the first person you contact after being accused of a construction defect. There are numerous issues that can lead to a construction defect, yet there’s precious little time to determine the actual cause. Allow us to defend your company against a construction defect claim before you take the blame for someone else’s mistake.  

Payment Dispute Resolution

Whether it entails drafting a demand letter or negotiating with a project owner, we can work to find a solution that sees your company paid for work or materials provided. In the unlikely event that a payment dispute escalates, we can begin the process of filing a mechanic’s lien, a way of ensuring payment even if an owner is unwilling or unable to pay. Payments are your company’s lifeblood. Don’t leave one of the most essential parts of your business to chance. 

License Defense 

A contractor’s license ensures that a contractor is legitimate, insured, and legally protected. It’s essential for conducting business. When accused of contracting without a license, a contractor runs the risk of losing their right to work. At Cotney Construction Law, we can’t abide by that. If you are ever accused of contracting without a license, remember that the attorneys at our Indianapolis law firm are always able to assist you.
