Advocating for Contractors and Subcontractors

Property owners and funding authorities are also experiencing fiscal stress in Connecticut. As a result, sometimes an owner will improperly withhold progress payments or final payment without a valid basis. Also, owners may sometimes attempt to claim that work was substandard or even defective. The construction lawyers at our firm respond aggressively to allegations of faulty or imperfect work.

Owners should pay for work that was properly and timely performed, and we are committed to devising creative approaches that result in a “win-win” outcome for both parties. However, make no mistake, if our client requires aggressive litigation of a dispute, we are fully committed to deploying all necessary resources to the endeavor

We utilize tools and strategies designed to secure prompt resolution of payment disputes without the expenditure of significant legal fees. In Connecticut, mechanics’ liens provide a safeguard for parties providing labor or materials in connection with a construction project. However, the mechanics’ lien statute is somewhat technical and complete compliance is necessary in order to properly perfect a contractor’s lien rights. Likewise, on public projects and some private jobs, payment bonds provide security to unpaid contractors – if pursued in a timely manner.

At Ciulla & Donofrio, LLP, we understand and have taught seminars about the mechanics’ lien and payment bond laws in Connecticut, and we regularly prepare and file mechanics’ liens and payment bond claims for our contractor clients. Our experience and technical skills help us protect our clients from any potential obstacles during the construction lien process.
