Let us build you a solid foundation and tear down their defenses.

 

Construction law experience

Suraj Vyas has tackled numerous construction law issues involving delay damages, differing site conditions, obstruction of performance, bid regulation, design defects, and scope of work. He understands the terminology and industry practices allowing him to assist effectively without pause. Although we believe it is always best to have an attorney look over the initial contract, Suraj is ready, willing, and able to step in at any time and counsel you through any stage in your project. Assisting on inspections for Terminal 2 at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, a project worth over $1.5B, as well as small residential renovations, Mr. Vyas is no stranger to serving as advisory counsel for construction projects both large and small.

professional liability

Sometimes it doesn’t matter how well you have planned your project. Mistakes and negligence are always a possibility. The Law Offices of Suraj A. Vyas works closely with construction management experts, engineers, and OSHA consultants to ensure contracts, plans, and any sort of legal correspondence are handled in a way to minimize potential future liability. Mr. Vyas has been involved in providing engineering services and as such brings a level of understanding to any sort of letters and documents he sends on behalf of your contracting company. From slender columns to lamellar tearing, Mr. Vyas ensures he communicates in way that engineers can understand while also maintaining a record of correspondence that is legally sound and OSHA compliant.

project bidding

Project bids are the bread and butter (or the cement and aggregate) of many contractors. At The Law Offices of Suraj A. Vyas, we can draft bid proposals, bid corrections, and even handle the relationship between general contractors and subcontractors in a manner that ensures that all relevant terms are defined in a way to avoid ambiguity and all conditions are sufficiently explained in provisions that impose specific obligations on the parties. By having an attorney with knowledge of the customs and norms of the construction industry, contractors can be at ease knowing that their engineering jargon is not going to be misconstrued by Mr. Vyas. With consistent, clear communications between contractors, work tends to be carried out smoothly from beginning to end.

differing site conditions

If the issue isn't with the performance specification documents, it's likely with the design specification documents. Whenever there is a discrepancy between what is in the contract and what is presented to the contractor at the job site, issues arise. Sometimes there's an exculpatory clause in the contract. Sometimes the parties believe they can work through it and just adjust a bit here and there. More often than not, in both those situations, problems just get worse. Subsurface conditions are worse than anyone could have possibly imagined and the engineering manager in a state of a constant headache as the flow down to subcontractors begins. Avoid this nightmare and get in touch with The Law Offices of Suraj A. Vyas at the first sight of a problem.
