Construction Litigation

Our construction law attorneys represent homeowners, associations, developers, general contractors, and sub-contractors from throughout the construction industry. Recently, Maginnis Law has represented businesses that are involved in: HVAC/heating and air, architects, engineers, plumbing, painting, staffing companies who furnish labor, material suppliers, concrete, granite, and marble installers, electricians, home automation companies, distributors, and roofing companies in disputes with various entities.

North Carolina law allows general contractors, and sub-contractors, including second-tier and third-tier subcontractors, to protect themselves in construction litigation disputes with property owners, residential developers, and commercial development companies. North Carolina’s lien statutes allow construction workers to protect themselves from not being paid promptly, or not being paid at all.

Additionally, properly perfected lien claims allow the prevailing party to potentially recover their attorney fees. This allows construction companies to feel comfortable using funds to retain an attorney; they know that if they are in the right, they can recover funds owed to them. North Carolina also has a complicated, but workable structure, for subcontractors to assure themselves of payment in publicly supported, surety bonded government projects. Similarly, home owners and developers require experienced representation to preclude contractors from wrongly asserting their lien rights.

Maginnis Law also represents parties in various other construction civil litigation disputes, including:

The firm also handles numerous non-construction matters appropriate for the general contractor or small sub-contractor LLC, including breach of contract litigation, corporate formation and business law, insurance coverage, employment law, including disputes under the Wage and Hour Act, as well as most other civil matters.
