Construction Law Attorneys
From bid through completion, our Arizona construction law attorneys assist clients to get the job done, on time and within budget. We take the legal details off our client's desks so they can complete the work-whether they are a general contractor, subcontractor, owner, developer, lender or material supplier. Our Arizona construction lawyers let construction companies do what they do best - manage and complete construction projects while we handle legal issues regarding contracts, payment rights and remedies, license bond claims, lien foreclosures, insurance coverage, change orders, and more. Due to their deep experience, they anticipate pitfalls in construction projects and if disputes arise, they deftly work to resolve them.
