Is Your Construction Project About to Fall Apart?
You know that your construction project has many pieces that must come together seamlessly for the project to succeed. The owner, general contractor, subcontractors, and suppliers all have to be on the same page. The contracts have to be negotiated and signed. The plans have to be approved. Change orders have to be submitted. Schedules and critical paths have to be in place. If any one piece is missing, the entire project falls off track and is at risk of stopping altogether.
What do you do when a construction dispute arises? An owner is unhappy with construction progress. A contractor walks off the project. A supplier doesn’t come through as promised. A construction defect is discovered and an insurance claim follows. The worst has happened, and you need help deciding how to move forward.
Successful resolution of construction disputes requires a combination of construction knowledge and litigation experience. The lawyers at Murdock Law have that unique combination of knowledge and skills to help you resolve your construction problems.

You have a form construction contract you use on all your projects, but the contract hasn’t been reviewed in years. You’re not sure if it complies with current laws, and you’ve had several clients raise questions about that paragraph on the second page. You’re sure it could be better drafted so that your construction company is protected and your clients understand the terms of the deal. You’re worried about what might happen if you don’t tighten up your contracts.
We can help. At Murdock Law, we regularly review and advise clients on their existing construction contracts. We flag the parts of the contracts that need rewriting. We point out where critical contract language is missing. We write contracts in a way that clarifies your intent. Our experience in litigating construction contracts gives us valuable insight into how to best protect your company.
Don’t have a contract? We can help you there too. We work with general contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers to write contracts for construction projects of all sizes.
Murdock Law can help you have confidence in your construction contracts again so that you can focus on doing your best work.
