If you’re running a construction business, it’s not enough to be good at your trade. Unfortunately, you have to be well versed in construction law. At least, that’s what it seems like. Construction companies must regularly contend with construction disputes, safety concerns, and a number of other legal issues that could easily leave their company in a bind.
At Cotney Construction Law, we believe that you shouldn’t need a law degree to get by in the construction industry. That’s why we are now offering our legal services to Toronto contractors. If you are in need of construction-related legal assistance, remember that a Toronto construction attorney from Cotney Construction Law is always here to assist you.
Our Toronto Construction Attorneys Are Here for You and Your Company
Cotney Construction Law provides invaluable construction services for construction firms all across the United States, and now we’re offering our skills and experience to construction firms based in the Great White North. If your firm requires assistance with an area of construction law described below, don’t hesitate to contact our law firm for assistance.
Some of our services are designed to protect companies, while others are designed to help companies grow. Our tendering services help companies do both. If your firm requires assistance with the procurement process, our Toronto construction attorneys can assist your company as it procures lucrative contracts. We can also assist your company if a contract was unfairly awarded to a competing party.
Construction companies operating in Toronto should follow recommendations made by the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS). Unfortunately, that’s easier said than done. The CCOHS has a wealth of information that would take you an exorbitant amount of time to review. At Cotney Construction Law, we can do the heavy lifting for you. Allow us to inform you of your rights and responsibilities as an employer and defend you in the event of an inspection from an employment standards officer.
Ontario has enacted prompt pay laws to ensure that contractors and subcontractors are paid in a timely manner. Unfortunately, this hasn’t stopped payment disputes from emerging. In the event that an owner or general contractor refuses or is unable to forfeit owed payment, a Toronto construction attorney can assist you with filing a construction lien, a complicated process with strict rules and deadlines.
Construction disputes are costly and time consuming. At Cotney Construction Law, our attorneys are willing to take any action to resolve your dispute, including pursuing litigation or engaging in alternative dispute resolution (ADR). Whether your dispute stems from a construction defect, payment dispute, or breach of contract, our team of attorneys is willing and able to assist you.
