Federal Contract Disputes Attorneys and Federal Construction Claims Lawyers

Watson & Associates, LLC, our federal construction law lawyers also handle a wide variety of federal government contracting cases, including the following:

Contract delay claims: When companies bid on federal jobs, it is common for the contracting officer to deny claims for legally valid delay claims in the contract agreement. The common dispute is whether or not there is a compensable claim, or whether the agency was required to give you extra time to complete the project. As construction claims lawyers, we often help with appeals to the various boards of contract appeals and the Court of Federal Claims.

Weather delay claims and differing site conditions: This is yet a very common dispute between general contractors on a federal construction project. When companies experience differing site conditions, there are some deadlines that must be followed. Our lawyers help with issues regarding site inspections and more.
