Mountain Law Group, LLC has extensive experience in complex construction disputes over breach of contract and construction defects. We represent contractors and subcontractors suing for non-payment, as well as owners suing builders for substandard construction or non-performance.

Our skilled trial lawyers provide plaintiff or defense representation in Summit County, Vail Valley and throughout the High Country. We commonly litigate high-end residential and commercial projects gone awry, with big dollars at stake. We also provide savvy counsel on the front end of drafting construction contracts.

Our cases have covered the spectrum:

  • Construction defect claims — structural defects, water intrusion, mold damage, erosion
  • Breach of contract — termination, failure to perform, fraud
  • Perfecting mechanic’s liens against the owner’s property for non-payment
  • Cross-claims between generals, subs, suppliers and design firms
  • Surety and performance bond claims and litigation

We have a firm understanding of our clients’ rights and remedies under Colorado’s Construction Defect Action Reform Act (CDARA). We act quickly to investigate construction disputes and file a Notice of Claim within the statute of limitations. Once we have collected the necessary evidence, we can advise clients in negotiation, mediation or arbitration.

We draft, modify and review construction contracts and related agreements for residential or commercial projects in the Vail Valley, Summit County, and throughout the Colorado Rockies. Our experienced attorneys regularly advise owners or investors, design-build firms, general contractors, subcontractors, architect and engineering firms, material suppliers and others in the construction chain.

Colorado Construction Contract Attorneys

When there are multiple parties involved on a project, our role is make sure that liability is distributed proportionately. Our knowledge of contractual law, construction law and the industry lingo enables us to clarify the terms of conditions of all contracts and agreements. We know that a missing clause or ambiguous language creates loopholes that invite legal conflicts or costly delays.

We routinely handle both AIA contracts, in which the architecture firm hires the contractors, and design-build contracts, in which the general contractor is at the top of the hierarchy. We advise clients on which model is best suited for the project, or whether a hybrid contract is called for.
