Attorney Bart Gernander has practiced in construction law for many years. He understands that time is money and that timely payment along the construction chain is a chief concern. He carefully prepares contracts to address issues that might lead to project delay or payment disputes:

  • Scope of work
  • Agreements with subcontractors and suppliers
  • Provisions for resolving disputes, such as arbitration
  • Financing commitments and progress payments
  • Contingent payments
  • Treatment of change orders
  • Responsibility for unanticipated costs
  • Performance bonds and surety bonds

Construction Contract Disputes

We also represent contractors and subs in enforcing claims and pursuing mechanic's liens or payment bond claims. We are prepared to go to court to extract payment for work performed.  We also defend builders in construction defect disputes.

Bart Gernander is a formidable trial lawyer who is intimately familiar with Minnesota law, industry standards and construction contract language. He will contest any provision of the contract that places undue financial burdens or liability on our clients.
