Atlanta firm builds solutions

At Bates & Baum, we understand construction law and the construction business. With our 50 years combined experience, we can help you build solutions to the problems affecting your residential, commercial, industrial or public development projects.

Our firm handles construction disputes for a wide variety of clients, including contractors, property owners, and construction companies. Our experienced team of construction attorneys advocates for our clients’ interests in court, arbitration and administrative agency hearings and is dedicated to providing clients with the best possible results.

Handling construction disputes effectively

We help clients avoid and resolve construction disputes in the following areas:

  • Contract disputes
  • Collections and payment disputes
  • Insurance coverage
  • Material suppliers’ rights
  • Mechanic’s liens

Contract disputes

Construction projects often require the signing of multiple contracts to secure access to labor and materials. Breach of any of these contracts can cause havoc on your work site. Bates & Baum helps you get the compensation and services you need to finish your project on time. We also assist with drafting and review of contracts to protect your interests in the future.

Collections and payment disputes

Our firm handles all situations involving payment disputes, including:

  • Bid contests, mistakes and protests
  • Collections
  • Non-payment for extra work
  • Surety bond claims
  • Stop notices
  • Work stoppages and delays
  • Writs of attachment

We expect the unexpected, and our attorneys work to get you the relief you are looking for. We also represent property developers and owners, helping them fight unjustified claims brought against them.

Insurance coverage

Insurance companies often cause serious problems during the construction process. If an insurance company has denied or disclaimed your coverage, Bates & Baum can help you get the protection you need to move forward.

Material suppliers’ rights

Suppliers have many of the same rights as contractors, and they deserve the relief that they are entitled to. We help suppliers receive the compensation they deserve by enforcing personal guarantees made by property developers, and assist in filing liens, stop notices and writs of attachment on their behalf.

Mechanic’s liens

Bates & Baum helps contractors and material suppliers draft, serve, file and enforce mechanic’s liens against property developers and owners to ensure payment for services rendered. We also represent contractors, developers and owners, helping them to vacate improper or exaggerated liens brought against them.
