Construction Law


            Regardless of how well a construction project is managed, disputes and delays are sometimes inevitable.  At Todd & Associates, we are committed to providing cost-effective representation in an effort to minimize further delays to the project or jeopardize profits and important business relationships.  


            Our firm advises contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, developers, and property owners in resolving disputes that may occur before, during or after a construction project.  As trial lawyers, our firm is often called upon to advocate for a client in disputes stemming from the construction process.  The firm also has an extensive administrative practice and is available to defend clients in professional disciplinary matters before the California Architects Board, Contractors State License Board, Board of Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors, Landscape Architects Technical Committee, and the Structural Pest Control Board.


            Our extensive experience in the construction industry is a vital factor in providing our clients with valuable insight about complex issues in disputes over:


            Scope of Work (when there are different interpretations of the work to be performed)


            Construction Defect (when the work performed does not conform to the plans/specifications)


            Mechanics Liens (when an allegation of non-payment is made for work and/or supplies)


            Insurance/Surety/Bonding Claims (when claims or disputes about coverage occur)


            If you are involved in a construction-related dispute, our firm can assist you in evaluating damages caused from delays, defective or substandard workmanship, or specific contract provisions.  Our clients have included well-known contractors, architects, and engineers.  We have advised domestic and international property owners and developers with regard to design, build, structural, and other performance issues.  Our firm assists our clients in drafting and negotiating construction contracts / subcontracts as well as in preparing lien affidavits, stop notices, and bond claims.  We prosecute and defend collection and payment issues including actions to foreclose mechanics liens.


            When you need representation for construction-related issues, Todd & Associates is poised to put their expertise to work strategically for your business.
