This is an exciting time to work in the construction industry in Texas. The economy is good and there is a lot of work to be done. Given this work environment, it is more important than ever to work smart, to do the work that is in your wheelhouse and to profit. There are so many different types of businesses working in construction and you need to know how to structure your work to avoid the pitfalls that are out there, particularly construction lawsuits. By proactively seeking the legal counsel you need to draft and review contracts, by getting all the permits and approvals required to do this work, by using a mechanic’s lien properly in order to assure payment for your work, by managing employees in compliance with employment law, and by conforming with the requirements of OSHA and more, you can significantly reduce the risk to your business of construction lawsuits.
Businesses in the construction industry deliver a variety of services. If you are a contractor, you may be dealing with a number of businesses providing a range of services. On the other hand, your company may be an architectural or engineering firm, an electrical business, a plumbing company, a roofing contractor or a welding business. You may be working as a subcontractor for a contractor. Throughout all of these relationships and businesses, work that has not been structured well contractually is a breeding ground for construction lawsuits.
Contractor Counsel, a subscription-based legal plan for contractors and businesses delivering services in the construction industry, is an incredibly affordable way for your business to get its legal advice upfront, reducing the risk of construction lawsuits going forward.
