For your business to thrive, you need to work with a seasoned construction litigation lawyer and not a general practitioner. The construction industry is fast-paced and challenging. You need someone who can hit the ground running to deliver the service you deserve.
Look for a Diverse Skillset
Construction law involves a number of complex legal issues and processes. For example:
- Planning and approvals
- Property law
- Dispute resolution
- Tort law
- Employment law
- Occupational safety
- Workers’ compensation
- Mechanic’s liens
A good construction lawyer should have the skills and experience necessary to handle issues you are likely to encounter while doing business. This includes legal acumen as well as foundational knowledge of your specific industry. After all, someone who doesn’t know the difference between concrete and cement is unlikely to provide the level of precision you require.
At Stone LLP, we’re proactive problem solvers. When you need help, we’re there to rise to the challenge.
Choose Someone Confident in Court
Although some construction-related legal issues can be resolved out of court, you must be prepared for litigation when the need arises. Choose someone who is confident in court and doesn’t shy away from conflict.
References from satisfied clients can be a great help in this area. At Stone LLP, we believe our success speaks for itself. Review our testimonials to see how we’ve been able to help clients in the past, then call our office with any additional questions you have about our litigation experience.
Plan to Develop a Long-Term Professional Relationship
The worst thing you can do is to wait until your business is operating in crisis mode to search for a lawyer who can handle your issue. Be proactive and find a firm you can develop a long-term professional relationship with. When you know you have effective representation at your fingertips, you can keep your focus on handling your company’s core business issues.
