Wisconsin Construction Lawyers

Murdock Law is passionate about construction law. It is professionally rewarding to help contractors and owners resolve the legal issues that arise from construction projects. 

We believe that it is important for attorneys to be leaders and educators in the industries they serve.  Our attorneys regularly give presentations on construction law topics.  Murdock Law’s construction attorneys have presented at the Metropolitan Builders’ Association, NARI, real estate brokerage firms, and many individual construction and remodeling companies. In addition, We’re involved in several construction related trade associations including the National Association for the Remodeling Industry (“NARI”) and the Wisconsin State Bar’s Construction section to ensure that we stay at the front of our field. 

In addition to our professional involvement, Murdock Law attorneys have also volunteered with habitat For Humanity where we have had the honor of hanging drywall on a project home.

Remodeling Issues
There are unique laws that apply to remodeling projects and we help both owners and contractors navigate the legal pitfalls that arise out of remodeling projects.
Construction Defects
Work that is defective and does not meet the owners' reasonable expectation can damage the property, cause physical injuries, and reduce the value of the building. We are experienced in pursuing and defending against construction defect claims.
Design Errors
Design errors can result from many factors including unclear overview of the designs, lack of coordination process, and human mistakes. Design errors can delay projects , affect safety performance, and cost significant amounts to fix.
Construction Liens
Wisconsin lien law provides a mechanism for contractor to protect their right to get paid for work.
Delay Claims
Delay claims typically arise out of unanticipated project events and circumstances which extend the project and/or prevent work from being performed as originally planned. Such delays can be costly for contractors and owners alike.
Insurance Coverage
We have helped numerous contractors and property owners obtain insurance coverage for claims of construction defects.
