Construction Law Services

At West Coast Defense, our Construction Law Services are tailored to address the intricate and often contentious issues that arise in the construction industry. Our team of seasoned attorneys brings a deep understanding of the legal challenges faced by property owners, contractors, developers, and other stakeholders in construction projects across California.

Comprehensive Contractual Support

  • Contract Drafting, Negotiation and Review – We specialize in drafting clear, comprehensive construction contracts that delineate the rights, responsibilities, and expectations of all parties involved. Our thorough contract review process helps clients identify potential issues and mitigate risks before they escalate. Our attorneys are skilled negotiators who strive to secure favorable terms for our clients, ensuring that contracts are balanced, fair, and aligned with their project goals and legal protections.
  • Breach of Contract – We represent clients in disputes arising from breached construction contracts, tackling issues such as non-performance, delays, and payment conflicts. Our goal is to secure remedies that may include completion of the work, compensation, or contract termination, depending on the situation.

Resolving Construction Disputes

  • Construction Defect Claims – Our team adeptly handles claims related to construction defects such as structural issues. We work to hold responsible parties accountable, seeking repairs, compensation, or other appropriate remedies for our clients in claims against contractors, developers, and other parties responsible for substandard workmanship or materials.
  • Change Order Disputes – Construction projects often evolve, leading to disputes over change orders. We assist in resolving these conflicts, ensuring that any changes are documented, priced fairly, and agreed upon by all parties.

Ensuring Legal Compliance and Quality

  • Regulatory Compliance – We guide clients through the complex landscape of building codes, regulations, and permits, ensuring that construction projects comply with all applicable laws and standards.
  • Quality Assurance – Our legal oversight extends to ensuring that construction projects meet the agreed-upon standards and specifications, protecting clients from the consequences of subpar workmanship.

Protecting Clients in Litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution

When construction disputes escalate to litigation, our attorneys are prepared to represent our clients’ interests vigorously in court, leveraging our comprehensive understanding of construction law to achieve favorable outcomes. Recognizing the cost and time benefits of ADR, we often recommend mediation or arbitration as effective means to resolve construction disputes outside of the courtroom, facilitating collaborative and amicable solutions.
