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 we craft a construction contract that anticipates and plans for situations when a project goes wrong. You must pay attention to the details. Otherwise, these mistakes can wind up voiding a contract or worse.
We Can Help Subcontractors and Material Suppliers with Contract Signing and Negotiations.
Did someone hand you a construction contract? Are you wondering what some of it means? Then, don’t sign it! Have us look over the contract first. Then, if necessary, have us bargain on your behalf. These simple measures will help you avoid a breach of contract situation.
We Can Help Contractors Prevent an Occupational Safety Hazard Act (OSHA) Violation.
OSHA’s mission is to ensure employers keep employees healthy and safe. But, failure to comply with OSHA regulations is a failure to provide a safe working environment. There are ever-increasing complexities in the workplace. Furthermore, there are extensive state and federal health and safety regulations. Plus, you have to understand how and when these regulations apply, as well as the penalties involved for non-compliance. This is not an easy task for many employers. So, 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 see plenty of performance and completion issues. These may include things like:
- 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. We also prepare for differing site conditions. Additionally, if a business or individual sues you for a contract violation related to changes and differing site conditions, then we will defend you in that lawsuit.

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 then stick up for you at the bargaining table.
We Can Help Builders, General Contractors, Subcontractors, Architects or Engineers with Construction Defect Claims.
Almost any condition that reduces the value of a home, condominium, or common area can be legally recognized as a defect in design or workmanship, or a defect related to land movement. If someone makes a construction defect claim against you, then we can protect you in Missouri or Kansas litigation. Just give us a call and let our construction attorney explain what you need to know.
