Construction Law

Harris, McClellan, Binau & Cox, P.L.L., provides legal counsel to the construction industry and real estate developers, as well as individuals involved in disputes and litigation matters related to design, construction and management of commercial or residential property in central Ohio.

Our construction law transactional and litigation services are overseen by senior partner James B. Harris. Admitted to the bar in 1976, Mr. Harris has a lengthy record of successfully representing the interests of owners, general contractors and subcontractors, materialmen, architects and engineers in a wide variety of construction projects and construction law disputes.

Construction Contract Disputes

Construction bids and contracts are often complex and include provisions for subcontracts to multiple parties and material suppliers. The terms and provisions of the contract are legally binding. It is important to ensure that the correct construction delivery system (contract) is chosen for each project and that the terms of the construction contract are negotiated and drafted to protect your interests.

If contract disputes arise later in the project, we will protect your interests in construction litigation. We take pride in obtaining successful results in a cost-effective and efficient manner.

Our lawyers will advocate for your rights in all aspects of construction law and construction litigation, including:

  • Notices of commencements
  • Notices of furnishings
  • Mechanic's liens, materialmen's liens and other collections actions
  • Contract disputes
  • Design and construction defect liability
  • Prompt Payment Act
  • Delay and acceleration claims
  • Arbitration and mediation
  • Change order disputes
  • Bond claims
