Extra Work / Change Orders

Construction Contract Disputes in Los Angeles, California

Gill and Baldwin ● Handling Extra Work and Change Orders Since 1962

A lot can change between the time you sign a contract and the time you complete the deal. If the changes were unexpected, what can you do about them?

The developer or general contractor may expect you to do extra work without extra pay. Unless you signed a very bad contract, they have no right to make you do so. Protect your interests: Hire an attorney who will stick up for you at the bargaining table.

Gill and Baldwin, P.C., is an AV-rated* law firm providing experienced, ethical, cost-effective and practical services. To schedule an appointment, call 866-778-8034 or contact us online today.

Step One: Negotiate New Terms

Most construction contract disputes would be avoided if the original contract had contained some provision for dealing with the unanticipated "change." Or if the original contract had been written in clearer, more explicit terms.

Or course, hindsight is always 20/20. We begin handling these disputes by trying to negotiate new terms to your contract (see our page on contract negotiations). We try to find terms that will satisfy all parties.

Our goal is to resolve conflict and avoid the costly litigation that follows from an irresolvable construction contract dispute. But it's not always possible to avoid conflict. If we need to file a lawsuit, we are fully prepared to do so.
