Hunt Ortmann is one of the foremost authorities on California construction law, contracts, dispute resolution and litigation offering additional legal services in the areas of business and commercial law, employment matters and labor law compliance, real estate, insurance and suretyship.
While most public works contracts include extensive requirements regarding requests for and approvals of materials, equipment, or work other than that specified in contract documents, in the heat of an ongoing project, with the twin pressures of satisfying the schedule and maximizing productivity given limited access to the worksite, contractual niceties may be ignored: onsite personnel may request that additional work be done immediately, without making the written request required by the contract documents or obtaining prior approval. All these factors make it important to consult a Los Angeles Change Order and Extra Work Lawyer for all projects. We understand the harsh realities of the worksite, and the enormous pressures brought to bear as everyone tries to keep on schedule and to make progress towards completion. Nonetheless, additional materials, equipment and work cause escalated costs and can prevent contractors from earning a reasonable profit. Hunt Ortmann’s attorneys have successfully handled hundreds of disputes over change orders and requests for extra work, and have secured reasonable payment for our clients.
