Subcontractors and Suppliers
Subcontractors and Suppliers are key links in the construction chain. Projects would not get built without them. Subcontractors and Suppliers have their own set of legal issues with which the construction lawyers at Nexsen Pruet have decades of experience.
Of course, the most important issue for Subcontractors and Suppliers is getting paid. Nexsen Pruet’s construction lawyers know the ins and outs of lien and bond law which allows them to protect the rights of their clients. This detailed understanding of lien and bond law helps us put our clients in the best position to be paid.
Subcontractors and Suppliers are often confronted with the “pay if paid” trap and are squeezed on issues such as indemnity, warranty, schedule, delay, scope, etc. Knowing the legal and practical aspects of these thorny issues is why Nexsen Pruet’s lawyers add value to the resolution of these issues on the front end and the back end.
Supplier needs are often driven by UCC issues such as implied and express warranties, consequential damages, and the “battle of the forms.” Representing Suppliers in construction matters requires an understanding of the interplay between the UCC and general construction law. We are ready for the “battle.”
