Performance & Payment Bond Litigation

Many construction projects, particularly government projects, require contractors to provide performance and payment bonds to ensure that subcontractors and suppliers will be paid for their goods and services and that the project will be completed in accordance with specified standards.   Our law firm has extensive experience in both prosecuting and defending performance and payment bond claims.  We are committed to providing the highest quality legal services exclusively to clients working throughout the construction industry.

We represent construction industry clients by preparing proper notices and proofs of claim, as well as ensuring that all conditions precedent have been fully satisfied so as to enable our clients to successfully pursue claims against any bonds issued on a project. We will then vigorously represent our clients in asserting those claims.  When claims are made against our clients who have obtained performance or payment bond, our lawyers work with our clients to develop strong defense strategies and tactics to rapidly and favorably resolve the dispute. If an amicable agreement cannot be reached, we will aggressively represent our clients through mediation, arbitration, trial, and appeal in order to successfully resolve their performance and payment bond disputes.
