Contract Drafting

Drafting construction contracts is one of our primary duties. We prepare, revise, and interpret complex construction and design-build contracts, as well as joint-venture, partnership, and LLC agreements for significant development and construction projects in Washington State. We can also draft simple, easy-to-read agreements for smaller contracts and sub-contracts. Our creative drafting and risk-avoidance strategies help clients address contingencies that can arise before and during construction.

Claims and Litigation

CLF's construction defect lawyer has handled dozens of multimillion-dollar lawsuits for construction defect issues on both commercial and residential projects, as well as multiparty contract disputes among owners, contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers. Contact us when you need a contract dispute lawyer. We are intimately familiar with insurance coverage and construction issues that dominate these cases.

Liens and Collections

CLF represents owners, general contractors, developers, and subcontractors in construction lien, collection, and foreclosure actions. We have prepared and recorded hundreds of liens, from simple two-party disputes to multimillion-dollar disputes involving dozens of parties. We help clients protect and pursue lien rights and avoid losing money or paying unnecessary claims. Our experience in collecting unpaid debts further ensures that you get paid what you are owed.

Registration and Bonding

Performing construction work in Washington is illegal without proper bonding and registration. Our construction attorney can work with any construction business to ensure the requirements are met and maintained, so they can continue working in Washington State. We also help subcontractors and suppliers collect on unpaid claims within applicable bond or insurance limitations.
