Seattle and Tacoma Construction Law Attorney

Construction Law

Construction law is the body of law that deals with legal issues and matters surrounding the construction industry. Construction law primarily affects the interactions between contractors, subcontractors, owners, developers, design professionals, suppliers, construction workers, and construction customers. While construction law affects a broad array of groups, construction law also covers a broad range of legal issues and claims.

In most construction interactions, construction contracts and projects go as planned and the parties are satisfied with the exchange. Unfortunately, however, this is not always the case. Sometimes things do not go as planned or do not turn out as expected or as contracted for. For example, a contractor may fail to perform under the contract or a customer may refuse to cooperate or provide payment when performance is due. In such circumstances, oftentimes the only option is to invoke the legal system for assistance.
