Hennessy, Boe & Gondring, P.A. – Kansas City Construction Law Attorneys

The attorneys at Hennessy, Boe & Gondring, P.A., counsel and advise our construction clients regarding contracts, projects, claims and litigation. We are experienced litigators and construction law attorneys, representing general contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, equipment rental companies, sureties, bond companies, property owners, developers, architects and engineers.

Among other services, we provide advice, counsel and representation for:

Drafting contracts, subcontracts and changes to contracts

A well drafted contract can prevent many of the problems seen with construction contracts.  A well represented company or household anticipates most issues which arise during a construction project and prevents these issues from ever creating a legal problem.  Our representation at the drafting face saves money in potential litigation and ensures the efficient allocation of our clients’ risk.

Mechanic’s liens, including lien foreclosure suits

Subcontractors need to make sure that they are paid.  Subcontractors put in a tremendous amount or work in terms of supplies and labor under the promise that they will be paid for their hard work.  Mechanics liens protect the investment of supplies and labor.  Our practice helps to ensure the simple and cost-effective creation and enforcement of these liens.

Change Orders and requests for equitable adjustment

Jobs do not always go exactly as planned.  Even the most well planned project cannot anticipate every possible contingency.  Our practice helps to negotiate adjustments to these projects which lead to agreements that satisfy all parties involved.  Equitable adjustments allow for flexibility in construction projects that lead to the best possible outcome for everyone.

 

We also provide advice, counsel and representation for:

Deduct modifications and partial terminations for convenience

Claim drafting and negotiation

Terminations for convenience and default

Warranties and latent defect claims

Bond claims

Delays to the Project, including project delay and extended overhead claims

Owners’ failure to pay
