Contact our law firm today to learn more about how we can help with surety issues and other construction law matters.
What Type Of Surety Or Bonding Issue Is Involved In Your Case?
Our construction law attorneys have the experience to review the general indemnity agreement (GIA) that is a prerequisite to the issuance of a bond by a surety company. Since the GIA gives the surety legal authority to collect from the principal in the event of a default on the surety bond, it is important to be aware of such obligations.
Our lawyers are familiar with the typical terms and conditions contained in the GIA and the issues that may develop in relation to those provisions. They also handle matters related to the federal Miller Act bond for clients involved with federal government building contracts.
In addition, our attorneys regularly represent prime contractors, subcontractors and owners in construction disputes emanating from bid bonds disputes, payment bond claims and performance bond claims.
Protecting Your Interests When Things Go Wrong
Our lawyers have experience negotiating workout agreements with sureties. When workout agreements cannot be adequately negotiated, our attorneys can effectively represent our clients in litigation related to the surety bonds.
They also have experience prosecuting and defending claims made against statutory bonds, such as performance, payment, subdivision and other bonds, as well as prosecuting and defending other non-statutory bond claims.
