Construction is one of the most difficult areas of entrepreneurial activity due to the need to obtain numerous approvals and permits, without which the implementation of the project is illegal. This requires not only the ability to quickly navigate the current legislative norms in the field of construction but also a thorough knowledge of the established procedures and stages of obtaining permits. In a legal sense, the complexity of construction as an industry lies in the fact that the process of implementing a construction project is regulated by norms from different branches of law (land, urban planning, civil, environmental, administrative, and others).
The amount of financial investment in construction is always significant, and errors in the legal aspect can lead to significant losses and protracted litigation. Therefore, construction activities always require qualified legal support.
The help of lawyers with comprehensive knowledge and practical positive experience in the implementation of construction projects will increase the degree of project efficiency and reduce the risk of financial losses and litigation. We provide legal services both for the full support of construction projects and advise on specific issues.
Legal support for construction companies
The activities of all construction companies are accompanied by the commission of any legally significant actions. Any stage of construction, from design to the commissioning of an object, requires the preparation of contracts with contractors (customers, subcontractors, carriers, etc.) and documents for interaction with the authorities, providing the necessary approvals and permits, as well as conducting inspections.
For example, at the design stage, it is necessary to work out the procedure for acquiring a land plot for development, carry out engineering surveys, conclude agreements with designers of various sections of design documentation.
The immediate stage of construction includes obtaining a construction permit, attracting contractors and/or subcontractors to participate in the project, monitoring compliance with the sequence, timing, and quality of work performed, taking measures to ensure the safety of workers following safety requirements, etc.
The stage of putting the facility into operation includes carrying out work on the completion of construction, collecting the necessary documentation for the authorized authorities to check the operability of the capital construction facility (including utilities, etc.).
At all these stages, controversial situations may arise with the need to resolve them through negotiations or in court. At the same time, disputes may relate to both the order of execution of contracts, appeal against illegal bringing to administrative responsibility, appeal against other actions (inaction) of the authorities.
In practice, construction companies that do not have a full-time lawyer, contracts and other documents are developed independently, a very significant number of omissions are allowed due to the lack of special knowledge and experience in the field of law. This entails many problematic situations when defending a position in the framework of litigation, as well as in everyday activities in connection with violation of the requirements of the current legislation and prosecution.
Thus, at all stages of a construction company, the support of its activities by experienced construction lawyers makes it possible to significantly reduce legal claims that entail possible losses.
