Do you get involved with payment disputes on public and private constructions projects? (Aaron Dean discusses with "Reel Lawyers")


Each and every day construction is one of the largest components of the United States economy. And so there’s just more opportunity for disputes because it’s such a big part of the economy. In fact, this morning there was just an article in a newspaper that the city of Minneapolis for the fourth consecutive year issued building permits exceeding a billion dollars. So when you think about the total amount of money in dispute, it’s no surprise that there’s potential for disputes. Yes, each and every day I’m helping contractors recover money, whether it’s pursuing statutory remedies such as mechanics liens or payment bond claims or other statutory claims or pursuing their contract rights. So each and every day that’s probably the biggest part of my work on behalf of contractors.
