Lafayette Construction Law Attorneys Facilitating Your Project

Sound counsel and aggressive litigation protect your rights and bottom line

Construction projects are complex undertakings with multiple parties obligated to perform specific tasks in a timely manner.  Becker & Hebert has extensive experience representing both public and private clients in the construction industry to navigate these complexities. We provide detailed, tailored guidance to safeguard your interests in any project you undertake, as well as robust litigation services when you are damaged by a party’s breach of contract or are accused of a breach yourself.

Transactional services for clients across the construction industry

Our experienced construction law attorneys negotiate, draft and review contracts to protect from claims of nonperformance, defect, and delay, as well as other issues for any party with an interest in a construction project, including:

  • Architects and engineers
  • Banks and financial institutions
  • Contractors and subcontractors
  • Landowners and developers
  • Material suppliers
  • Sureties

Protecting your interests in a construction project begins with a well-drafted contract based on sound legal advice from attorneys with extensive experience in the construction industry.  The attorneys at Becker & Hebert possess that extensive experience, and will negotiate terms.

Aggressive litigators handle disputes arising from construction contracts

Disputes and issues we commonly manage for construction industry and business clients include:

  • Contract disputes
  • Collections and payment disputes
  • Construction defect claims
  • Architectural and engineering errors
  • Mechanic’s and materialmen’s liens
  • Liquidated damages
  • Louisiana Home Warranty Act claims
  • Real Estate disputes

Conflict doesn’t necessarily mean that expensive and exhausting litigation must follow. Our attorneys take a proactive approach to resolving disputes and seek to avoid litigation, when possible. Often, the controversy amounts to a misunderstanding over expected performance, which can be cured by revisiting the contract and reforming imprecise terms. When an actual breach has occurred, we search for efficient ways to implement the most appropriate remedy. We use negotiation, mediation and arbitration as alternatives to control costs and save time. But when justice requires aggressive litigation, we are equipped to diligently advocate for our clients’ rights.
