Contract Related Disputes

Comprehensive Construction Contract-Related Dispute Services

Construction projects are complex and involve numerous stakeholders, often leading to disputes over contract terms, performance, and payments. At NewPoint Law Group, LLP, we provide expert legal services to manage and resolve these disputes, ensuring your projects stay on track and your interests are safeguarded.

Payment Disputes

Payment issues are one of the most common sources of conflict in construction projects. We offer robust legal support to help you resolve payment disputes, including:

  • Mechanic's Lien Filing: If you're not paid for work completed, we can file a mechanic's lien on the property to secure your payment. This legal tool ensures that you have a claim against the property where the work was performed.

  • Breach of Contract Lawsuits: We represent you in court to recover unpaid amounts and enforce contract terms. Our goal is to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve for the work completed.

  • Attorney’s Fees Provisions: We utilize attorney's fees provisions in contracts to leverage and ensure that the non-paying party covers your legal expenses, providing a strong incentive for prompt payment.

  • Negotiation and Mediation: We offer negotiation and mediation services to resolve payment disputes amicably, helping you avoid costly and time-consuming litigation.

Scope of Work Disputes

Disagreements over the scope of work can lead to significant delays and cost overruns. Our services include:

  • Contract Interpretation: We analyze contract terms to determine the agreed-upon scope of work and whether any party has deviated from the contract.

  • Change Order Disputes: We help resolve disputes arising from changes in project scope, including the proper documentation and approval of change orders and the associated costs.

  • Performance Evaluations: We assist in evaluating whether the work performed meets contractual standards and requirements, ensuring that both parties fulfill their obligations.

Delay and Disruption Claims

Delays and disruptions can have a significant financial impact on construction projects. Our legal services in this area include:

  • Delay Analysis: We investigate the causes of project delays, including whether they are excusable or compensable under the contract terms.

  • Disruption Claims: We assist in filing or defending against claims related to disruptions that affect project timelines and budgets, such as unforeseen site conditions or delays caused by third parties.

  • Extension of Time Claims: We help you secure contract extensions to accommodate delays that are beyond your control, protecting you from liquidated damages and penalties.

Defective Work and Warranty Claims

Defective work can lead to disputes and costly repairs. We provide legal support to address these issues effectively:

  • Defective Work Claims: We represent clients in disputes over allegations of defective work, helping to determine liability and pursue appropriate remedies.

  • Warranty Enforcement: We assist in enforcing warranty provisions to ensure that defective work is corrected without additional cost to you.

Contract Termination Disputes

Termination of a construction contract can lead to complex legal issues. Our services include:

  • Justifiable Termination: We advise on whether contract termination is justified under the terms of the agreement and California law.

  • Termination for Convenience: We help navigate the implications of termination for convenience clauses, ensuring that all parties understand their rights and obligations.

  • Termination for Cause: We represent clients in disputes over terminations for cause, including breach of contract and failure to perform.

Dispute Resolution and Litigation

When disputes cannot be resolved through negotiation, we offer comprehensive dispute resolution and litigation services:

  • Mediation and Arbitration: We represent clients in mediation and arbitration to resolve disputes outside of court, saving time and costs associated with litigation.

  • Litigation: We provide aggressive representation in court to protect your rights and interests, whether you are pursuing or defending against a claim.

  • Appeals: We handle appeals of unfavorable decisions, ensuring that all legal options are explored to achieve a favorable outcome.
