Owners, contractors, subcontractors, material suppliers, and sureties certainly share many of the same objectives and concerns on any given project. However, under most project delivery methods, their interests and motivations can diverge significantly. Having a lawyer who is versed in the applicable law, understands the dynamics typical in project relationships, and is devoted to his client’s objectives results in representation that you can trust.
