Construction disputes often arise in any kind of construction project from the simple remodel to the major commercial building project. Slow payment or non-payment can be a real problem for a subcontractor. The owners need to get what they wanted. The general contractor is often caught in between.
We can help you with any kind of construction claim, dispute or lawsuit. We have substantial experience in the construction industry. Most construction contracts have dispute resolution clauses that must be followed. You might lose your day in court before you even get there. Whether it is litigation, arbitration, or mediation, we can help you get what you are due.
CONSTRUCTION LIENS AND BONDS
The Nebraska Construction Lien Act is a complicated set of statutes. Owners and lenders can protect themselves by being proactive. Even after a lien is filed, it can be removed to allow sale of the property.
Contactors, subcontractors and material vendors must be aware that lien rights can be waived in advance. Lien rights can be lost by delay in filing.
If you have not been paid for work you have done, call us. If there is a lien on your property, call us. We know construction bond and lien law.
