Construction projects can sometimes fall apart, leading to complex disputes concerning the payment and performance of various subcontractors, laborers, and materialmen who work under the general contractor. To ensure these subcontractors are paid for their work, surety bonds are often obtained prior to construction to guarantee payment.
Our attorneys regularly represent clients in suretyship-related disputes, from simple advice on payment and performance bond claims to takeover and tender issues on large projects. We are prepared to assist our surety clients in pursuing their indemnity rights and our principal clients in defending claims under their general agreements of indemnity. We address each of these issues with efficient and useful advice.
At Moody & Graf, our attorneys not only can offer practical advice, but also can litigate disputes if the need arises. We have successfully litigated claims, more often than not, to an agreeable settlement. If you are a surety in a construction dispute or a contractor at the center of a surety bond issue, contact the experienced attorneys at Moody & Graf for proper legal guidance and assistance.
