How Can Troppito Miller Griffin, LLC Prevent Problems With Your Kansas City Area Construction Job?
Construction Contract Drafting: You’ve heard it said, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. Conflicts can arise over construction contracts. The only way to avoid these conflicts in Missouri and Kansas is by exercising foresight. This means having us craft a construction contract that anticipates and plans for situations when a project goes wrong.
We Can Help Subcontractors and Material Suppliers with Contract Signing and Negotiations: If you are handed a construction contract and you are wondering what some of it means, don’t sign it. Have us look over the contract first, and if necessary have us bargain on your behalf.
We Can Help Contractors with Air Tight Contracts So That Even a Corporation Has to Pay: In a construction contract we draft, we can make a corporations’ directors and officers personally responsible on the contract, so you can go after the individuals’ assets too.
We Can Help Contractors Prevent an Occupational Safety Hazard Act (OSHA) Violation: OSHA's mission is to ensure employers keep employees healthy and safe. Failure to comply with OSHA regulations is considered a failure to provide a safe working environment. With the ever-increasing complexities of the workplace, and the extensive state and federal health and safety regulations, understanding how and when these regulations apply and the penalties involved for non-compliance is not an easy task for many employers. That’s where we come in. We’ll help you provide a healthy and safe workplace that meets OSHA’s requirements.
We Can Help Contractors Prevent Construction Changes and Differing Site Conditions Claims: Construction professionals are confronted with numerous performance and completion issues, including changes and extras, changed conditions, project schedules and time extensions, rights and remedies upon contract breach, and terminations. In the Construction contracts we draft in Kansas and Missouri, we prepare for these changes and differing site conditions. Additionally, if you are sued for a contract violation related to changes and differing site conditions, we will defend you in that lawsuit.
How Can Troppito Miller Griffin, LLC Help You Solve Problems With Your Construction Job in the Greater Kansas City Area?
We Can Make Sure General Contractors, Subcontractors and Material Suppliers Get Paid: If you aren't paid for the work you performed on a property or for the materials you supplied for the property, we can record a mechanic's lien against the property in Missouri and Kansas.
We Can Defend General Contractors If You Get Cited by OSHA: We are ready to defend employers against OSHA and state civil and criminal enforcement actions. We have broad experience in handling all types of OSHA litigation, including citations involving allegations of willful and repeated violations, proposed multi-million dollar civil penalties, and employee death.
We Can Help General Contractors with Construction Delay, Disruption and Acceleration Claims: In construction, “time is money.” With today’s complicated construction projects and tight schedules, disputes often arise regarding schedule delays and disruptions, acceleration demands, and liquidated damages. We regularly defend contractors in Kansas City area litigation for schedule-related claims.
We Can Make Sure Subcontractors and Material Suppliers Get Paid: Bonds and Miller Act Claims: Most public projects require the general contractor to obtain a performance and a payment bond. A subcontractor or material supplier can file a Miller Act claim, and we can handle that for you. Change Orders and Extra Work: A lot can change between the time you sign a contract and the time you complete the deal. The developer or general contractor may expect you to do extra work without extra pay. Unless you signed a very bad contract, they have no right to make you do so. We are here to protect your interests. Hire us and we will stick up for you at the bargaining table.
