Bonds Ellis Eppich Schafer Jones LLP’s Construction Law attorneys focus on Texas construction litigation and the formation and negotiation of construction contracts. We provide practical legal counsel to our clients, including owners, general contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, and design professionals involved in both commercial construction projects and residential construction projects.
Our transactional team drafts and negotiates construction contracts, general conditions, special conditions, releases, joint check agreements, mechanic’s liens, lien releases, performance bonds, payments bonds, indemnity agreements, stop-work directives, contract termination documents, and subordination agreements for construction projects across a wide range of industries, from oil and gas facilities to school buildings, personal homes to office towers.
We believe that the people who are best suited to drafting construction contracts are those who have significant experience litigating those contracts. Our success in drafting construction documents stems from years of experience, not only in the drafting and negotiating process, but also in the litigation of construction claims.
When our clients have construction-related disputes, our construction litigation team is ready for action. Our construction litigation experience is extensive. We have successfully litigated, tried, and arbitrated cases involving construction defects, delay damages, payment claims, mechanic’s liens, performance bond claims, payment bond claims, bid disputes, pricing disputes, cost overruns, defective construction materials, defective products, and warranty claims. We also specialize in insurance and indemnity claims in construction disputes.
The mechanic’s liens statute in Texas (Texas Property Code Chapter 53) and the payment bond claim statute (Texas Government Code Chapter 2253) are unusually complex and difficult to navigate. The construction attorneys at Bonds Ellis Eppich Schafer Jones have a broad understanding of these statutes and have extensive experience in prosecuting and defending Texas mechanic’s liens and public payment bond claims.
