Georgia Construction Law Attorneys
A leader in Georgia construction law for over 25 years, the Cobb Law Group brings expertise, experience and knowledge to your team. Focusing on project development, construction contracting, construction litigation, and payment issues including materialmen’s liens and payment bond claims, our firm understands your goals and needs. In commercial matters large and small, we have the experience and the knowledge to be strategic partners with our clients regardless of whether they are starting a new project or mitigating issues to a current project. In fact, we represent owners, developers, design professionals, prime contractors, specialty subcontractors and material suppliers throughout Georgia.
We Represent All Construction Tiers: While it is true that we represent all tiers of the construction industry from material suppliers to project owner, our history gives us a unique insight into every aspect of the construction process. When our firm began, for example, we started representing several national material suppliers; decades later, we still represent almost every one of these companies along with specialty subcontractors. In fact, we have addressed so many legal issues related specifically to subcontractors and suppliers that we have become known nationally in the burgeoning practice of law known as “Subcontractor Law”. In the last decade, our growth has centered around prime contractors, design professionals as well as owners and developers. Through this process, we have learned the business side of construction, and we remain mindful of our clients’ goals in each matter.
We Stay Current: As construction attorneys, we stay current on new legislation, case holdings and economic trends which affect our clients and their businesses. Our attorneys and staff bring unique skills to your team from past construction management to current public-office holders. Everyone here speaks and publishes regularly on Georgia construction law, and we are very active in numerous professional organizations. Although our firm has grown and evolved over the years to be a statewide construction law practice–in addition to managing legal concerns for clients on a regional and national scale–our core values and principled dedication to client service remains constant.
We are Problem Solvers Not General Practitioners: We are not general practitioners; instead, we focus our practice towards those in the construction industry. We can help you with all aspects of your business whether it be in the planning and bidding process or with litigation claims stemming from your project. We solve our clients’ problems, but the best way to solve problems is by planning in advance and avoiding them altogether. Thus, we assist clients with vetting and due diligence related to their projects, allocating and mitigating risks before they happen, and building contracts that promote a successful project.
Contracts & Governmental Affairs: Our firm has drafted and negotiated hundreds of construction contracts. We assist with licensing issues and governmental requirements. For example, we offer our clients all types of contract drafting and advice including advice on custom contracts as well as on common construction contract forms such as AIA contracts and ConsensusDocs contracts.
Complex Construction Litigation: Our firm represents clients in all state and federal courts in litigation matters including contract interpretation, damages for delay, liquidated damages, risk allocation, and construction defects. In addition, we regularly represent clients in arbitration and mediation as well as serve as third party neutrals for others’ involved in construction disputes.
Lien and Bond Claims: For clients with payment issues, we have decades of experience preparing and filing thousands of mechanics and materialmen’s liens–perfecting, enforcing and foreclosing upon materialmen’s liens, making claims against payment and surety bonds, and all aspects of construction litigation related to materialmen’s liens and payment bond enforcement. We are seasoned arbitrators and mediators and understand how legal costs impact our clients’ decisions.
You Can Rely Upon the Cobb Law Group: Furthermore, our decades of experience provides our clients with unparalleled legal representation regardless of whether they are starting a new business and obtaining construction licenses or need to address complex contracting issues and public works bid protests. In doing this, we build strong, on-going relationships in order to better understand our clients’ businesses. Unlike some firms, we do not cease representing our clients after judgment has been entered in their favour. We continue to represent them through all aspects of collection including lien foreclosure actions, garnishments and other avenues.
Our clients count on our reputation for integrity, professionalism, and unwavering devotion to address their priorities and legal needs. Colleagues from other states routinely seek our expertise in materialmen’s lien law, local litigation, and construction contracts. We regularly participate in and conduct seminars, training workshops, and continuing legal education programs for our clients, construction professionals, as well as for other attorneys. And, we are regularly interviewed by on-line and print media in the areas of construction lien filings, payment bond claim filings, construction litigation, and related matters.
Cobb Law Group attorneys are proud members of their communities and are dedicated to improving our society through volunteer and other charitable endeavours. Our attorneys work in a vibrant environment that fosters team work and a sense of legal community based upon the spirit on which the firm was founded.
