Since first being reported in the central Chinese city of Wuhan, coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has had a devastating impact on the world and the construction industry. According to a survey conducted by the Associated General Contractors of America (ACG), 27 percent of construction firms have reported that they have furloughed or terminated workers, while 59 percent have reported project delays or disruptions. Many construction companies have been asked by government officials to shut down. Others are struggling to remain profitable as they provide essential services for their communities. The last thing these companies need to worry about right now is a legal issue.
Now more than ever, contractors should invest in prepaid legal services that can protect their companies in times of need. At Cotney Construction Law, we’ve put together a series of subscription plans that will prove invaluable to construction companies of all sizes. Below, we discuss how these services can benefit your entire team and business during the COVID-19 outbreak and beyond.
Protect Your Company With These Prepaid Law Firm Services
Starting at $599 per month with our Bronze plan, your company can gain access to invaluable services, including unlimited phone calls with CCL, unlimited contact review (non-dispute), and unlimited manual review and updates. Here’s how these prepaid law firm services can help you and your team.
Gain a Trusted Ally
As COVID-19 has illustrated, pressing legal issues rarely occur at a convenient time for owners. In fact, they rarely present themselves specifically to owners; they’re often spotted by a team member. That’s why all of our plans include access to an on-demand attorney for contractors and their entire team. That means that your project managers, superintendents, HR director, and safety director all have access to legal assistance when they need it most.
Avoid Legal Disputes
A poorly drafted contract is the number one cause of construction disputes, so we figured that our clients would benefit most if we included prepaid legal services like unlimited contract review in all of our subscription plans. And for construction companies that invest in our Gold plan, they gain access to unlimited document drafting (non-dispute), ensuring that all of their contracts can include provisions, such as a force majeure clause or price acceleration provisions, that are invaluable for preventing disputes during difficult times.
Protect Your Jobsites
How your jobsites are managed in the coming weeks and months will be critical for securing your success during the COVID-19 outbreak. No doubt your business is feeling the strain of labor gaps made worse by the outbreak. With our Bronze plan and access to an on-demand attorney and unlimited phone calls with our law firm, you can rest assured knowing that any legal-related questions you have will be answered. And for $1199 a month, our Silver plan comes with unlimited manual reviews and updates, ensuring that your workforce is properly informed of their rights and responsibilities.
