Drafting and Reviewing Building Contracts for Contractors and Property Owners
Our Michigan lawyers assist our clients in a variety of legal matters related to the construction industry and its consumers. We draft building contracts, individualized to the contractors’ and customers’ individual needs and goals. We provide building contract reviews for builders and property owners regarding new homes and additions, to clarify construction payment terms and eliminate unenforceable language.
Protecting our Clients’ Rights
Our services emphasize protecting our clients’ interests. We take utmost care to build in the most advantageous position possible for our clients, whether they are providers or consumers. We negotiate the most favorable possible contract terms for those we represent and ensure they are enforceable under Michigan construction law statutory requirements.
Ensuring the Inclusion of Remedies in Case of Dissatisfaction
If our client is the homeowner or other property owner who is contracting for construction services, we ensure that their building contract includes strong remedial provisions for shoddy or incomplete work or delays, and indemnification for on-the-job injuries.
Providing for Full Compensation for a Job Well Done
If our client is the builder, we negotiate contract provisions that will allow them to be paid in full and on time. We draft, process, and collect on construction liens.
Establishing Dispute Resolution Agreements in Case of Breach of Contract
For both property owners and contractors in the Tri-county area of Wayne County, Macomb County, and Oakland County and beyond, we encourage the inclusion of contract provisions for appropriate dispute resolution mechanisms in case of breach of contract. These may include exit strategies, Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) such as agreements to mediate or use the arbitration process, choice of law, choice of jurisdiction, or other appropriate terms.
