What is Construction Law?
Construction law is an area of law that encompasses multiple areas of the legal process, from commercial to employment law.

Construction lawyers can help the construction workers and clients negotiate the initial terms of their agreement, and can help a wronged party find justice.
Do You Need a Construction Lawyer?

However, if your project is more complex or you are unfamiliar with construction projects, it’s a good idea to get the help of a lawyer to draft a contract for the project. A construction lawyer can be particularly helpful in the following situations:
- If you are worried about environmental regulations, permits, or are working with multiple parties on the same project;
- If the construction company you hired failed to do what you asked;
- If you completed a construction job and were not compensated appropriately for your work, and
- If you are dealing with high-cost construction project.
What To Do When Someone Breaches Your Construction Contract
Construction contract breaches can cause particularly harmful and dangerous situations, particularly if it is the contractor that fails to abide by the contract. If you were wronged by a breach of contract, you may be entitled to receive damages from the other party. A construction law attorney can help you reach an understanding through settlement, mediation, arbitration, or trial. The primary risk of litigation arises from different interpretations of a contract or disputes regarding the quality of the work and defects in construction.
