Update on ABA’s Subcontractor Law Book

Georgia Construction Law Book


Two days before Thanksgiving, the Cobb Law Group‘s founding partner, Mark Cobb and his editor submitted their final revisions for the new book on Subcontractor Law to be published by the American Bar Association (ABA) next spring.

As long-time readers of this blog recall, in early 2012, the ABA Forum on Construction law began working on the first national book to be published on the unique specialty area of subcontractor law, and Georgia subcontractor attorney Mark Cobb was chosen as a contributor.  Mark was honored to be selected to participate in this project particularly since he is the only construction lawyer from Georgia working on this project.

Mark’s contributions to the book focused on payment issues faced by subcontractors on their projects.  Topics range from preliminary contract terms, paid-if-paid and paid-then-paid terms, owner and general contractor breach as well as the remedies available to subcontractors including materialmen’s liens, subcontractor liens and payment bond claims.  For more information on this exciting project, please click here – – >

Since the final document has been sent to the publisher, the subcontractor law book remains on schedule with an anticipated publication date of April 2014.  It’s launch will likely coincide with the Annual Meeting of the ABA’s Forum on th Construction Industry.  We will post continued updates regarding this useful new book as they become available.
