A large part of our services for small businesses are geared towards those in the construction industry. The founders of Falcon Law PC, being long-time members of the construction industry themselves, take pride in representing a variety of stakeholders in the construction chain. We know that you’re busy operating your business and that’s why we want to take the legal issues off of your plate. We’d rather have you concentrating on your business than on courtrooms.
We believe in proactive lawyering at Falcon Law PC. In other words, we strive to be involved in your business from the get-go and before the issues arise. We want to understand your business and help you rectify areas of concern that may lead to disputes in the future. If and when disputes do arise, we want to be in a position to help you efficiently and effectively resolve those issues and proceed with business as normal.
People we’re often representing in the construction industry:
· General Contractors and Sub-contractors
· Architects, Engineers, Surveyors and Interior Designers
· Owners, Investors, and Developers
· Construction Suppliers
· Project Managers
· Construction Consultants
Below are some of the services we provide to our construction clients:
We’ll review your construction agreements and any other contractual documentation that you may have relating to a project. We know that it’s easy to download contract templates online, but most of the time these are non-compliant with the laws in jurisdiction and are not tailored to your business’s needs. So if you already have contracts, we’ll help you spot the issues and make them “bulletproof”. If you need new contracts, we’ll prepare these from scratch and in accordance with your business’s needs.
Billing and Collections
“We can’t get our money!” – a complaint that we often hear from our clients in construction. And that’s why we help our clients establish a billing and collections system that prevents overdue and unpaid balances. We’ll review your internal procedures (including contracts, documents, communications, billing, and more) and establish a plan for you to minimize non-payment. We want you to get paid and be able to focus on your work.
Construction Liens and Actions
There are strict limitations to registering construction liens in Ontario. When you’re engaging in any sort of a construction project, you need a construction lawyer at your right-hand to advise you of your lien rights. Falcon Law PC is well versed in construction lien actions and other construction related actions.
There are a lot of areas of construction and there are a lot of regulations for every area of construction. Ensuring your construction business is compliant with regulations can become complicated. That’s where we step in and guide you through any regulations your business may be subjected to. For instance, if you’re looking to build new homes in Ontario, we’ll help you navigate the process to become a Tarion certified builder. If you’re already a Tarion certified builder and you’re facing a Tarion claim, we can take care of that too.
We have a lot to talk about when it comes to construction. We’d love to know more about your business and advise you on how we can assist you.
