Advocacy & Contracts

More than three-quarters of the construction performed in the United States is performed by subcontractors. Whether you're a small, family-owned plastering subcontractor working primarily on renovations of historical properties or a multi-million dollar commercial mechanical subcontractor, your work is subject to:

  • General business laws and regulations (e.g., income tax, anti-trust).
  • Laws and regulations specific to the construction industry (e.g., mechanic's lien laws, anti-'bid shopping' laws, prompt pay laws).
  • And the "private law" of the subcontracts that describe subcontractors' performance obligations and allocate risk.
