Established Westlake Village Firm Serves Clients in Construction Disputes

Knowledgeable California litigator handles contract claims, insurance issues and building litigation

If you are dealing with a collapsing roof, an architectural error, or a construction contract dispute, experienced representation from an attorney who’s handled similar cases is essential to protect your investment. At the Law Office of Robert Nation in Westlake Village, I represent clients throughout Los Angeles County in construction matters. I’ve handled high-value cases involving complex construction and engineering problems in a wide range of projects, from high-rise hotels to custom homes. My background representing owners and builders offers each client a distinct advantage, and I am fully prepared to protect your rights in any construction law case you entrust to me.

Skilled lawyer offers representation for architectural and engineering errors

The more complex the construction, the more likely there are to be errors in the building process. One of the most common involves error and omissions change orders involving the scope, contract schedule or cost of a project. While design errors do not add cost to a project, they can add significant time. Omissions errors are more difficult and frustrating in that they add both time and expense to a project. When something is added to a project, additional materials are required, which is likely to delay the project and result in frustration for the contractor and the property owner. To avoid such issues, my firm can add an errors and omissions clause to my clients’ contracts to address errors made by architects and engineers and correctly set customer expectations.

Experienced firm assists with contract, collections and payment disputes

There are many problems that can arise during the construction process. These disputes may include:

  • Contracts — Failure to adhere to plans and specifications and changes to original plans are common sources of dispute. Most of these issues are costly, and some require litigation. I have significant experience in these situations and can assist you with any contract disagreement between you and your client.
  • Collections and payment — A common construction dispute in California involves the failure to pay for a project in a timely manner, or to not pay at all, which results in contractors not being able to pay their employees. My firm has extensive knowledge of the options available to you and can determine the best course of action.

I have significant experience with construction disputes and can assist you in resolving your matter as efficiently and effectively as possible.

Dedicated counselor provides sound advice on mechanic’s liens and insurance

Establishing a mechanic’s lien on a project offers protection for contractors and ensures that they will be paid for their work. California law requires contractors to provide notice to a property owner prior to preserving a lien for work performed up to 20 days before the notice is served. A mechanic’s lien in California includes the value of labor, services, materials and equipment in addition to the unpaid balance of the contract price. If you are a contractor who has not been properly paid for your work, my firm can assist you in establishing a lien to ensure that payment is made.

To avoid a potential lawsuit in any type of construction, it is important to make sure that your company is properly insured. I can examine your contracts to help you avoid risks such as construction defect suits.
