In 2008, we decided to expand our Atlanta-based construction law practice to southwest Georgia by opening a second office. This decision has made the biggest impact on our firm and in our clients’ businesses. First, we love living in SW Georgia! Second, we have enjoyed tremendous growth in our SW Georgia Office as suppliers, subcontractors and general contractors have sought out our services.
Although we still maintain a full office in metropolitan Atlanta, we having enjoyed being this area’s only law firm practicing only construction law. As such, we have handles matters from Albany to Valdosta to Hawkinsville and everywhere else!
It’s been a wonderful association as we, too, have learned a lot from our clients about the way construction projects and bidding happen in this part of the state. Although relationships are vital to all construction projects, we have noticed the emphasis that SW Georgia’s construction professionals place on building and maintaining relationships. It is not uncommon for contractors to have a multi-generational relationships with their subcontractors and suppliers as businesses have passed by parent to child.
Despite these relationships, however, sometimes payment flowing downstream are slow or, worse, non-existent. When that happens, our SW Georgia clients rely upon our experience to help them recover the money they are owed. Our clients include Fortune 500 material and equipment suppliers as well as “mom-and-pop” subcontractors; we have helped collect payment on large industrial projects as well as small, residential remodels, and we have filed thousands of mechanics and materialmen’s liens on private construction projects throughout Georgia as well as payment bond claims on public works projects.
What We Do
For more than 20 years, the Cobb Law Group has excelled in its statewide practice in Georgia construction law with an emphasis on filing materialmen’s liens, mechanic’s liens, and construction liens as well as enforcing payment bond claim rights, Miller Act and Little Miller Act litigation, business & corporate law and commercial collections for the construction industry. We represent numerous businesses, material suppliers, specialty subcontractors, general contractors, and others in the field throughout Georgia.
We are not general practitioners; instead, we focus our practice towards those in the construction industry. Our firm represents clients in all Georgia state and federal courts in the preparation and filing of mechanics’ liens; perfecting, enforcing and foreclosing upon materialmen’s liens; making claims against payment & surety bonds, and all aspects of construction litigation related to materialmen’s liens and payment bond enforcement.
Georgia is a large state so many of our clients appreciate our ability to handle matters throughout our wonderful state. Of course, we can also assist you in tightening up your construction contracts, subcontractor agreements, negotiating payment with owners and prime contractors, as well as preparing and filing all types of construction liens (including materialmen’s liens, subcontractor liens, supplier liens, etc) and pursuing payment from sureties (payment bond companies), owners, developers. We can help you get your money on all of your projects as well.
