On behalf of Kaplin Stewart Meloff Reiter & Stein, P.C. posted in Contract Bidding on Sep 11, 2014.
As a construction lawyer, I deal with cases involving non-payment every day. Sometimes I represent the owner and on other occasions I represent the contractor or subcontractor. I have even represented sureties on payment related issues. No matter which company I represent, however, payment issues often come down to one single common denominator: a lack of practical planning combined with a failure to build contingencies into bids.
