The Benefits of Partnering With a Chicago Construction Attorney

As a contractor, there are numerous legal services that you will need throughout your career. Reviewing contracts, filing mechanic’s liens, and drafting demand letters are just a few of the services our attorneys perform when called upon. And while your first instinct may be to avoid an attorney at all costs, it’s actually in your best interest to partner with a Chicago construction attorney from Cotney Attorneys & Consultants. 

By partnering with a team of attorneys before project commencement, your company will actually save money in the long run. We can help you avoid and resolve disputes that would normally cost companies millions of dollars, all for one low monthly price

The Many Services Provided by Our Chicago Construction Attorneys

Being dedicated solely to the construction industry, our Chicago construction attorneys are capable of providing all of your construction-related legal needs. Here are just a few of the services offered at Cotney Attorneys & Consultants. 

  • Contract Drafting: Our attorneys can negotiate on your behalf and draft comprehensive contracts that are fair for all parties involved. Too often, contractors will agree to contract terms without fully understanding the consequences. We can also review your existing contracts to ensure that there are no hidden surprises.
  • Payment Retrieval: You’d be surprised how often a well-drafted demand letter with a legal letterhead will resolve an impending payment dispute. In the rare case that an owner still refuses to relinquish payment, a Chicago construction attorney can move forward with a mechanic’s lien or litigation. 
  • Manual Drafting: Not all problems stem from owners or other contractors. Sometimes it’s your own workers who need to be reminded of the rules and regulations. We can review, update, and draft employee manuals, thereby protecting your company from liability and ensuring your workers are given the tools they need to be successful.
  • OSHA Defense: Despite their best efforts, contractors can still be visited by OSHA compliance officers. By investing in OSHA defense, you can better avoid costly OSHA citations in the future. 

The Services Your Business Needs to Grow 

The best part about the above services? They are available with a Cotney Attorneys & Consultants subscription plan. Construction companies regularly rely on these services to prevent and resolve some of the most common issues plaguing the industry — breach of contract, withheld payment, employee misconduct, etc. By partnering with a Chicago construction attorney, you’ll save money in the long run by avoiding costly disputes and issues that have cost other companies millions of dollars. For a team that will protect your company and best interests, partner with the attorneys from Cotney Attorneys & Consultants.
