Construction Law

Cincinnati Construction Law Attorney


Professionals in the construction industry are often immersed in legal disputes arising from contract disputes, payment refusal, claims of defective construction work, and mechanics’ liens. These can be avoided through the use of detailed contracts prior to beginning a construction relationship or, if litigation has commenced, through negotiations. At the Cincinnati law office of Cornetet, Meyer, Rush & Stapleton, Co., L.P.A., our attorneys provide sound legal advice and experienced representation to our clients on all construction matters.

Contact a skilled construction lawyer at our firm for assistance with any of the following legal issues:

  • Construction contracts
  • Mechanics’ liens
  • Land development disputes
  • Eminent domain
  • Other construction litigation

We represent builders, property developers, mechanics, and other construction professionals in all stages of construction, from planning and zoning applications, to drafting and review of construction contracts, forming a business entity or joint venture, and environmental compliance concerns. When disputes arise, we will negotiate or litigate, working to obtain the appropriate resolution for the issue.

Contracts — Protecting Your Rights and Interests

We ensure that our client’s rights and interests are preserved through well drafted construction contracts and other documents. We negotiate, review, and draft construction contracts, including agreements between developers, general contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, and other professionals.

Litigation — Effective Resolution of Construction Disputes

When construction law disputes arise between project owners, architects, engineers, contractors, sub-contractors and the trades, we analyze the initial agreement examining the terms and how they may be interpreted. We strive to enforce the rights of our clients in disputes involving delayed payment, mechanics’ liens, delayed projects, and other construction disputes.

Mechanics’ Liens — Protect and Enforce Your Investment

We assist parties through the process of ensuring proper payment for services rendered. By following proper statutory guidelines for filing a mechanics’ lien, we protect our client’s right to be paid. When a mechanics’ lien is legally attached to a parcel of property, that property cannot be disposed of without satisfaction of the mechanics’ lien.
