Construction Law Attorneys

What is Construction Law?  For the lawyers at HSLC, it involves representing clients in contract drafting, contract disputes, commercial collections, mechanic’s lien claims, payment bond claims, and complex civil litigation.  We assist in the drafting or negotiation of joint check agreements, promissory notes, security agreements and other means of securing payment for materials and labor.

Our firm regularly represents material suppliers such that our lawyers were actively involved in the drafting of the 2012 revisions to the North Carolina Lien and Bond statutes.  Accordingly, we are familiar with North Carolina’s pre-notice requirements, lien agents, Notices of Contract, Subcontract and Public Subcontract.

We represent contractors and subcontractors in complex construction litigation involving issues such as construction defects, delay claims, warranty issues, and scope of work changes.

Hannah Sheridan Loughridge & Cochran’s attorneys represent developers in matters involving easements, utilities, condemnation and procuring of entitlements necessary for real estate development.

Our attorneys draft and review construction contracts, purchase orders, credit applications, lien waivers and other construction-related documents.  We undertake critical path analysis and review construction schedules.

With lawyers admitted to practice in North Carolina’s state courts, in all three federal districts in North Carolina, as well as the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court of the United States of America, our lawyers can see litigation through to its conclusion.  We enjoy working with individuals and corporations rooted in the construction industry and seek to build relationships which stand the test of time by providing advice and counsel on the front end in an effort to prevent the need for litigation.  However, if litigation becomes necessary, we possess the experience, expertise and skills to prosecute or defend your case whether through the courts, by means of arbitration, or in mediation.
