Construction Law & Litigation

California Construction Law Firm
Stocker & Lancaster, LLP

You’re a business owner and you’ve just commenced work on a new construction project. The architect has drafted the plans, the general contractor is hired, permits and approval are obtained, and construction begins. Three weeks later, your contractor discovers he severely underbid on the costs for your project and suddenly quits. What should you do?

In most instances, construction contract disputes can be effectively and satisfactorily settled through negotiation or mediation. It saves time and money. But sometimes the other side is just not reasonable. Among other remedies, we can make demand on their bond, insurance carrier, help replace the contractor and file a claim while your project continues.

In these situations, with the experience of hundreds of cases from start to finish, we’re more than ready to go to court for you.

We represent owners, developers, architects, contractors, engineers and others in all of their construction litigation matters, including:

  • construction defect claims in design or workmanship
  • mechanics’ liens and construction liens
  • stop notice claims
  • construction bond claims, payment bond claims, performance bond claims
  • defective products
  • extra work claims and delay damages
  • insurance issues
  • water intrusion, mold, and asbestos issues
  • construction accidents

Whatever the issue, we have the experience, knowledge, and litigation skill to guide you through it. If you are a facing a construction-related legal concern and would like to speak with an experienced California construction law firm, Stocker & Lancaster, LLP are ready to help you today.
