Tampa Business Litigation Attorneys / Tampa General Contractor Attorney

Tampa General Contractor Attorney

Being a general contractor has many benefits. You can start your own business, engage in a variety of work, and explore new career opportunities. However, general contractors also face a number of legal challenges. Our Tampa general contractor attorney can help with all of these including construction liens, litigation, defending OSHA violations, reviewing legal documents, and more.

Construction Liens

If a property owner has not paid in full and on time, it may be possible to place a construction lien on the property. When a property has a construction lien on it, it cannot be sold or transferred until the outstanding amount due is paid in full. Obtaining a construction lien is not easy. There are many steps to take and you must comply with many different laws. Our Tampa general contractor attorney can help you through these steps so you successfully obtain the lien you need.

Construction Litigation

Non-payment is just one type of dispute general contractors commonly face. Perhaps the property owner or other party breached the terms of a contract you had both agreed to. Or, perhaps the owner has changed the scope of the project after you had already agreed to its terms. These are just a few types of disputes general contractors face, and they often require litigation to resolve. Our attorney can represent you in court and advise on forms of alternative dispute resolution methods, such as mediation and arbitration that may be more beneficial than going to court.

OSHA Violations

Being accused of an Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) violation is very stressful for general contractors. You may even face complaints or allegations against your professional license. You should never take these accusations lightly. If you do not act quickly, you may face steep penalties, restrictions on the services you can offer, and even suspension or revocation of your professional license.

Reviewing Legal Documents

As a general contractor, legal documents are an integral part of your business. You must ensure that any contract you enter into has been drafted and executed properly, so your rights are protected now, and in the event of any future dispute. If you believe a contract does not protect your best interests, it is critical that you speak to a Tampa general contractor attorney right away. Our experienced attorney can also draft and review a number of legal documents, such as promissory notes, terms of use, releases, warranties, provisions, and more.
