Why Do I Need a Construction Lawyer for my Business?
Georgia law (federal too) give special rights to construction related industries. These rights cover areas that start with the licensing procedures, continue through the bidding process, surety qualifications and contract drafting and finish with default and payment issues such as mechanics liens and payment bond claims. Frequently, these rights are further delineated by contract, state law, surety law, and federal law; in addition, these rights may differ depending upon the nature or location of the project. Contractors’ rights on federal projects and State of Georgia projects are different. It’s vital that you choose a qualified and competent lawyer to handle all aspects of your construction business.
