Protect Your Construction Business with a Chicago Construction Lawyer

As construction businesses expand their operations in the Windy City, chances are that they will increasingly rely on the services of a Chicago construction lawyer. Construction lawyers provide a myriad of helpful services beyond just representing a business during a dispute. In fact, as your firm continues to focus on construction projects and business operations, a construction law firm can provide your business with the legal knowledge it needs to remain protected and lawful. This way you can focus on what you do best: growing your business.  

How Our Chicago Construction Lawyers Can Help Your Construction Business

At Cotney Attorneys & Consultants, we are committed to the construction industry. Here are a few areas of the law that our Chicago construction lawyers practice in:

Contract Review

Our attorneys can draft, revise, and review all your construction contracts. As the construction contract is the primary culprit of the majority of construction disputes, we can ensure that all your agreements with owners, subcontractors, suppliers, and your workforce are worded clearly and protect your business. 

OSHA Defense

We provide a myriad of helpful services that provide a healthy and safe workplace for construction employers. If you experienced a fine during a safety investigation, we can challenge the citation on your behalf. Whether you’re interested in safety manual updates, jobsite audits, or improving the safety aspects of your company culture, consult our law firm. 

Lien Advice

We are highly knowledgeable of mechanics’ lien requirements in Illinois and can provide insight into your rights and available options to seek payment from an owner. We can also successfully file liens and notices on your behalf to preserve your lien rights and get you paid quickly. Our attorneys can also help you with any of your construction bond needs.  


We can advise you on your best legal options for a dispute, including litigation. We have successfully represented construction firms nationwide in a variety of cases, including payment disputes, construction defect claims, breach of warranty cases, and license defense cases. 

Arbitration and Mediation

Depending on your case, your contract, and your relationship with the other party, alternative dispute resolution (ADR) may be the best legal option to resolve your dispute, as opposed to litigation. Our attorneys are highly experienced in ADR proceedings and can help you quickly and privately resolve a dispute.   

Employment Law

We offer a variety of legal services that can help protect and grow your business, including representation in wage and hour cases, employment handbook drafting and review, intellectual property cases, tax advice, and assistance with corporate transactions and succession plans.

There are many benefits to partnering with a construction law firm. To learn more about the ways we can effectively protect and help your business grow, consult our Chicago construction lawyers
