We keep your operation efficient
Granite Peak Law helps architects, engineers, contractors, suppliers and others navigate the contractual terms that allocate risk in the construction lifecycle. We help you to spot risks in your business and use contractual protections to mitigate any potential losses. An ounce of prevent is worth a pound of cure in the design and construction process. Let us give you the advice you need early in the process so you can increase your business efficiency and not run into problems down the road.
Liens and Litigation
It is vital that you exercise your lien rights as soon as possible in any construction project. Each state has its own particular requirements, often requiring early action to maintain your rights. We help companies navigate this important process to enforce their rights by filing a Notice and Lien Statement, and any other required documents, in a timely manner. Once a lien has been obtained, we help our clients foreclose these liens to collect on unpaid debts. Most owners and construction managers will make sure you are made whole before collection costs escalate.
We also work with insurance companies and adjusters when payments bonds have been secured for your project. We make sure we understand the bond claims process and enforce your rights against these insurers when they balk at their obligations. If necessary, we will file a lawsuit to help keep all parties accountable to satisfy their payment obligations to our clients.
