These are just some of the terms which are unique to the construction industry, a very specialized area of business law. The savvy construction practitioner will understand the legal impact of these terms for their client, which may be a subcontractor, general contractor, manufacturer, supplier, surety, or owner. But what if you had an attorney who understands the legal impact of these terms and many others for all of these parties?

Jim Ludwig has represented all six of these types of construction clients in his nearly 10 years of construction law practice. He has used his construction law knowledge to negotiate complex construction contracts, defend lien and bond claims, prosecute delay claims, litigate builders risk claims, and much more. Currently, Jim serves as Owner’s legal rep on a $39 million dollar project, constantly advising the Owner on its contractual rights and obligations. In addition to handling pure construction claims, he has defended harassment and discrimination claims filed by construction employees and helped construction clients maintain compliance with the litany of employment, safety, and federal contracting rules and regulations specific to the industry.

From a subcontractor looking to protect its lien rights to an Owner exercising its termination rights, and nearly any other situation in between, Jim Ludwig can handle the construction and business related needs of your company.
