    Public Works

    Public Entity Disputes

    The law for construction on public works can be vastly different from that of private projects. There are many unique attributes and constraints in public works that do not exist in the private sector, such as the rules for competitive bidding, sole sourcing, subcontractor listing, bonding requirements, stop payment notices and payment bonds, MBE/WBE participation, to name a few. The California Codes set forth a complicated array of statutes governing public contracts. While the basic rules are consolidated in the California Public Contract Code, additional requirements are found in numerous other codes, state regulations, city charters, and local ordinances. There are literally thousands of public entities in California, including the State of California, Counties, Cities, and special districts. The attorneys at Hunt Ortmann understand that while many of these entities are required to adhere to some aspect to the Public Contract Code, almost all of them also have agency specific requirements set forth in regulations, ordinances, and charters, as well as the variety of internal procedures governing Public Works Contracts and Dispute Resolution.

    When it comes to disputes over public works projects, Hunt Ortmann’s attorneys have handled every imaginable type of claim or issue. We have successfully defended and prosecuted countless claims on behalf of both contractors and public entities, and have the breadth of experience necessary to quickly analyze complicated projects involving multiple parties and numerous claims, and to effectively prepare and execute a litigation plan that will resolve our clients’ disputes efficiently.
