Construction Claims Attorney | San Antonio Construction Claims Lawyer

The Vethan Law Firm, P.C. (“VLF”) has experience representing general contractors, sub-contractors, and project owners in complex and contested construction law and litigation matters for more than ten years.  For larger claims, these disputes are typically addressed in arbitration before the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), under the AAA’s Construction Rules, as requested by documents promulgated by the American Institute of Architects (“AIA”).  Litigating construction disputes typically involves performance disputes between the General and Sub-Contractors, as to performance, change orders, remedial measures taken on a project, tracking payments and determining if those payments complied with the Schedule of Values, and claims regarding the illegal termination of contracts (whether termination was for convenience or termination for cause). From residential to large commercial ventures, VLF is in the know when it comes to the nuances, complexities and realities of Construction Law.

The attorneys of VLF are mindful that construction disputes hinge on the interpretation of each element of the contract agreement. VLF and its clients collaboratively review all aspects of the agreement; including, but not limited to, bidding instructions and requirements, blueprints, MEPs, and issues concerning approved and specified construction products and equipment selected on the project.  Should there be a need for arbitration, our construction lawyers are well qualified and will assess each dispute and discuss the feasibility of each alleged claim.

  • Arbitration under the American Arbitration Association (AAA) Construction Rules
  • Trapping funds held by property owners and the general contractors
